  • HATE YOU LIKE I LOVE YOU [cut x cut]

    Granger: “Hate You Like I Love You” is one of the songs I’m really, really excited about and have been ever since the day I wrote it. I was on the bus in 2019 with some good buddies of mine and I brought up the scenario to them that really intrigued me. I said “Hey. What is the opposite of love?” and they all quickly answered, “Well, hate of course.” Nope. The opposite of love is indifference. Like complete apathy. Like “I don’t care.” And actually, hate is a close relative of love. I mean it takes the same passion, the same extreme emotional effort to hate as it does to love. So, what if I wrote this song about the fellow who is hopelessly in love with this girl that he can’t have. And what if he’s trying everything he can do to make that leap of his love and turn it into hate. And that should be easy right? You would think. Well we discussed it for a bit on the bus and then the lyrics and the melody came quick and the production, actually… I struggled with this one. Because maybe I knew how important it was going to be, but I remember scrapping at least three takes of this song. Three different drum recordings searching for that perfect vibe I had in my head and with producing so many other songs in my life, I loved it in the beginning, then I hated it, then I slowly started liking it and then I rediscovered my love for it in the process. And today I couldn’t be more happy with the way that it turned out – almost like a self-fulling prophecy with this song. I had to hate it first and now I love “Hate You Like I Love You.”
