Speaking about ‘Wait In Love’ via a press release, Sultan said: “Wait in Love was one of the first songs I wrote for my record and it helped set the benchmark and tone for the rest of the writing and the general approach from then on. . It’s one of my favorite songs and it feels like I’ve known it forever. It’s about when I decided to get sober and the circumstances surrounding it.”
“From the press coverage at the time to the love and support I received from my loved ones and especially my girlfriend at the time and now wife, Bron. It is a love song to ourselves and our beautiful future together. Our first child arrived almost a year later to the day. I love Wait in Love and I’m proud to have written it for us.”
