Jeff Lynne hadn't planned on recording new material to follow up 2015's Alone in the Universe
, but much to his surprise, this song came "from out of nowhere." Lynne explained to Louder
"I was just sitting at my guitar like I normally would, and this chord sequence came to me and I just went, 'Oh, that's good!'
The title came to me because the chords came to me so quickly. I started singing the little melody and it gradually grew, and I extended bits and made them bigger, and then I started recording it in my home studio."
