This is one of seven tracks on the album that feature horn charts by Jerry Hey (Michael Jackson, Earth, Wind & Fire), while one of Motown's Funk Brothers, bassist Bob Babbitt, also guests on Shout it Out. "Y'know, we grew up listening to a lot of that early R&B stuff, especially '60s and '70s R&B," Isaac Hanson noted to Billboard magazine. "Otis (Redding) and countless others, and Motown... you forget how much horns played a part in a lot of really iconic kind of American R&B sound. And that also translated into more pop and singer-songwriter stuff we used to listen to, like Billy Joel's An Innocent Man, which is one of his biggest records, there's horns all over the placed on that record. That was the stuff we grew up listening to and really worked its way onto this record."
