This is the first single from Welcome 2 My Nightmare, a follow up to the rocker's 1975 concept album, Welcome to My Nightmare. Both records were recorded with Cooper's longtime collaborator Bob Ezrin, and while the original album was a journey through the nightmares of a 7-year-old Alice named Stephen, its sequel treads the same ground but in a more lighthearted manner with each track representing a different aspect of a bad dream. "This is Alice's nightmare 35 years later," explained Alice, "Bob and I created this character and we know how to write for him. I play the part but we're not writing for me, we're writing for Alice. We kept the first Nightmare album very personal to us, on this one we found more humour and we were more open."
