There have been a few changes regarding Frank Turner's outlook on life since recording his 2015 album Positive Songs for Negative People. He attributes his new perspective to dealing with his mental health issues. Turner told The Sun:
"I've spent so long walking away from issues and now I can talk about it more openly. My girlfriend and I had some bumpy moments in our relationship and I had some growing up to do to make it work. I went and had some cognitive behavioral therapy for various addiction issues and it was life-changing.
"That's where my song Little Changes on the album comes from - it's about the small decisions you make in life. Now I still drink but I've quit smoking and all that sort of business."
Frank Turner told the story of the song: "Little Changes started out as a simple folk song about relationships, in particular drawing on my experiences with CBT therapy in the last couple of years - the idea of trying to make small, practical adjustments to your life, which can add up to something significant. Over time, the music grew in a really interesting, early '80s pop direction, and the metaphor of the lyric grew into something more expansive."
George Harrison's 1971 song "Bangla Desh" was the first major charity single. It was part of a concert held to bring relief to the people of Bangladesh, who were fighting for independence and suffering from a famine.
Kacey Musgraves originally offered "Follow Your Arrow" to her friend Katy Perry. However, Perry thought Musgraves should record the song herself as it seemed, "like something that you would totally say."
