Singer, guitarist, and songwriter Warren Haynes explained to Billboard magazine how the band came up with this song's epic, trippy arrangement: "We tried that song a lot of different ways before we settled on an approach. It's very psychedelic and it covers a lot of ground stylistically. The middle section gets jazzy and trippy, then it goes back to where we were. I think that was kind of a turning point in the studio. We realized we were breaking some new ground, going places we had not gone before, so it was a nice catalyst for the rest of the stuff that we recorded."
