Songfacts®:

  • The recording of this song was a pivotal moment on Sound & Color. "That was one of the earlier songs we did, and it hit a lot of different chords," guitarist Heath Fogg said. "A lot of songs branched out from that one - it's a hard-driving R&B song, but there's a time change midway though, effects on Brittany's voice, different extremes that were explored."
  • Alabama Shakes performed the song live on television for the first time on February 28, 2015 on Saturday Night Live.
  • Alabama Shakes performed at Prince's Paisley Park studio in Minneapolis, Minnesota on June 1, 2015, with the Purple One himself joining the band onstage live for a rendition of this song. According to reports, the performance saw Prince shredding guitar for a good 15 minutes.
