Album: The Long Road Home (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the debut solo single released by We Are Harlot and Asking Alexandria frontman Danny Worsnop. The country song came out of nowhere when he was in a Columbus, Ohio bar whilst touring with We Are Harlot. Worsnop recalled:

    "That first verse just jumped right out of my eighteenth glass of Jameson and right into my mind. Knowing my brain, I immediately excused myself and waited for the lightning to strike. I then proceeded to pace outside the bar singing into my phone until the song was done, which was probably about 20 minutes later."

    He added: "The song was so much fun to write, record, and film, which is appropriate as however much it is in ways about being exhausted and done with one's reality, it is at its core a fun, upbeat song about letting loose. Something we all need to do every once in a while."
  • The video was shot with Kentucky filmmaker Blake Judd and sees Worsnop escaping from the toils of life. He said:

    "I had the video in my head from that exact moment and was very excited to realize it. I had already written the treatment when I was introduced to Blake Judd, with whom I worked at getting what was in my mind onto film. He was very open to letting me take the reins which was very important to me, and we are already discussing what we're doing together next."
