Eric Clapton guests on this song. Hornsby explained to The Express Night Out that the British guitar legend, "just played on my last record and I had this track in infancy, so I asked him to play on it."
Hornsby told The Express Night Out that: "'Space Is the Place' is actually a rumination that occurs with very bright kids who are bored and not really engaged in school and are spacing out. The key line is: 'Keep your head in the clouds create something beautiful for me.'"
Will.I.am, literally dreamt up "I Gotta Feelin'." Said the Black Eyed Pea: "Have you ever had a dream where there's a melody in your dream? I'll wake up out of my sleep and record that! 'I Gotta Feelin' was one of those songs."
