  • Lyrics
  • Longtime producer Dann Huff had been in charge of the previous five Keith Urban albums, but the singer used ten separate producers to create the sounds on Fuse, including Butch Walker (Fall Out Boy, Weezer) on this track.
  • The song was a turning point in Fuse's trajectory. Urban had felt something in the song's energy that reminded him of Fall Out Boy's 2013 single "My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up)," so he brought the demo to the band's producer, Butch Walker. "I remember sitting in Butch's studio," said Urban, "and listening to what he did and thinking, 'we might have gone a little too far off the rails with this one.' but then I realized that this is probably where the expansion of the new sound begins. This is it, this is where we push out from where we used to be and go somewhere different."
  • Urban said to Rolling Stone of this uncharacteristically abrasive track: "It's sort of industrial-punk-ish, relative to what I do. Not like anything I've done before."
