Songfacts®:

  • Betty Moon gave Unclear Magazine the scoop on this funky track from her eighth solo album. She said: "I wrote that song with the idea that sometimes you need that escape from certain situations or even a life that you're not 110% satisfied with. It's about taking that leap, and putting yourself in a realm where you can be the person you've always wanted to become."
  • The music video, written and directed by Moon, features the leather-clad singer clad sporting a blonde hairdo. She performs against the backdrop of various scenes, including bustling cities, a moonlit ocean, and a skydiver among the clouds.

    "It was really fun making the video recently since I had this idea as I wrote the song. You really have to watch the video, listen to the lyrics and pick up on my vibe to understand the message fully. Part of my whole 'Betty Moon message' for my listeners is to live an amazing life," she explained. "We made sure the location, wardrobe and overall vibe matched the song perfectly. It was really about the editing after that, and since I did the video as well it was easy to keep within my vision. We filmed it in front of a green screen so choosing the right backgrounds were important to me, and I took my time to make it perfect in post."
