This single from Evan's second mixtape Back and Fourth
was produced by ill Factor (Róisín Murphy, Matisyahu
). Evan told AOL Music how the track was created: "Recording 'The Light' was an interesting process. I was recording with Jimmy Douglass and ill Factor in Miami, and we all had the idea to make an uptempo record but to keep it very much my swag. I took a handheld mic and just started freestyling over the beat that ill Factor was creating, and that is basically what birthed 'The Light.' Matt had some ideas for the hook and we just merged that with my freestyled verses, and at the end we all just looked at each other like 'that's kind of a fly!'"
