The song is the opening number on Waterhouse's 2012 debut, Times All Gone
. While many outlets were impressed with the masterful retro R&B sound featured on the record, Waterhouse disavowed that label. "It's just how I felt and I don't think it sounds like anything specific, which is what's important to me," he said to The Stool Pigeon
. "I'm not gonna name, it just play it. The album was just a lot of fun and anguish."
