Young told Billboard
magazine that the pacing of some of the A.M.
cuts is a little bit more progressive than his three past albums. "Where a lot of people will notice it is on the tempo stuff on this record. I really felt like I've had a few up tempo songs at radio, but really nothing aggressive," he said. "My tempos were always 'Voices
' or 'You
,' which are really more mid. I had a pretty good handle on mids and ballads and what I wanted to say with them. I felt I had locked in where I could do those well. I always felt like the tempos were the album cuts, so I really went after that on this record with James Stroud.
Young added that he really paid close attention to the tempo on this song. "It's very different than what we've put out before, but still very much me, and something I would say. It's not anything too out there, just a fun party song," he said. "That was the thought process going in from the very get go, was to do something sonically different on this record."
