Haze explained to XXL magazine that the title of her debut album was inspired by her favorite band. "When I thought about it, I was like, 'Oh! Let's do this,'" she recounted. "So I texted the lead singer [of Dirty Gold], Yeah, your name is going to be the name of my album.' He's like, 'So cool!'"
San Diego, California's Dirty Gold is an experimental Afro-Beat/Surf-Pop project of brothers Lincoln, Grant and John Ballif.
