In choosing the album title, the singer says, “There’s so many moments on this record that make me think about the last four years that I’ve been married, and ‘I’m a Fire’ just sums it all up,” David says. “It says, ‘I’ve walked through flames, come out on the other end, and the foremost reason is because of you.’” Concert-goers can expect to hear hits such as “Red Light,” “Let it Rain,” and “Whatever She’s Got,” plus many other songs from Nail’s three albums.
