elijah woods & MacKenzie Porter – “last girl” single

“St. Lawrence River, a quarter to 5. You asked if I’m swimming and I didn’t think twice. My head going under, I come up for air and you’re just sitting there. There must be something in the water ‘cause I’ve never seen it this clear. It’s you and me in the August heat, the bright orange everglow. The southern sky when it hits your eyes, there ain’t nowhere I wanna go.” – lyrics

“last girl” was originally released as part of elijah wood’s “bright orange everglow” EP, which was released earlier this year. For the duet version, woods tapped MacKenzie Porter to add her sweet Country touch to the already endearing song. Now, “last girl” is a truly stunning cross-genre single that will appeal to both their audiences and beyond. With passion, elijah woods sings, “This moment is perfect-sunburnt, shirtless, then everything starts to move slow. Then suddenly it just hit me, you’re the last girl I’m bringing home.”
