Joel Gibb of The Hidden Cameras returns to Canada after living in Berlin for several years and creates music that reflects his personal relationship with his home country. Regarding this track in particular he had this to say to Line of Best Fit:

“I wrote it a long time ago. I made a demo of the song in Berlin in 2006. I recorded the bass and drums in Toronto. I got my friend Brian LeBarton (who was Beck’s keyboard player for many years, I met him through being in Feist’s band) to play piano while I was in LA and recorded the back-up singers in LA as well last year. So it’s a simple song that was put together in pieces in different cities.”
