Aruba Red says about the track…..

“This is a song that is very close to my heart, it is about longing and searching, about trying to understand what has come before us and looking positively to the future. It is about hopes, journeys, dreams and finding strength. Take Me Down also led to one of the highlights of my musical journey so far, it was playing at the birth of my best friend’s baby boy, something that is really special to me. I hope you enjoy it and that you find your own interpretation within the music xx”
