This was the most difficult Big Mess
track to produce. Keyboardist Hannah Hooper recalled to Radio.com
"Andrew came in with 'Cannonball' and he wanted me to sing the lyrics and it didn't feel right. I actually re-wrote all the lyrics at one point. I was like, these are Andrew's words and even though we're best friends he's a surfer and lives in Venice and he's a man… ha ha. It just didn't feel like it was me. Whenever I'm singing, I wrote the lyrics to that part.
That was the first time Andrew and I had a real head-to-head and he's - as all artists are - sensitive about their work. So that was the hardest song for me but I absolutely love the way it turned out. We found an amazing balance of how to share that song vocally."
