Something to bask in during the summer months, “Dance In The Sun” is something great to heighten your summertime fun!
According to the Sarah Slaton, “’Dance In The Sun’ is a song that I wrote to cheer myself up after having a helluva a year losing too many people. It felt dark and heavy so the way to combat that was to write something that gave me hope. I wanted to roll down the windows and let go. I hope you can do the same.”
