Shortly after seeing for the first time the shiny album cover containing an airbrushed photo of her, Clarkson blogged: "It's very colorful and they have definitely photo-shopped the crap out of me but I don't care haha! whoever she is, she looks great."
Kelly Clarkson told The Daily Mail February 27, 2009: "This has a soulful vibe, but it's also a throwback to old-school rock. That comes naturally to me, because I love Janis Joplin and Aerosmith."
This was written by Sam Watters (formerly of the band Color Me Badd), his songwriting partner Louis Biancaniello, and Dameon Aranda, the lead guitarist/vocalist of the band Aranda. The trio also penned "Whyyawannabringmedown" on All I Ever Wanted. In addition, Watters and Biancaniello produced "I Want You" and the bonus track "The Day We Fell Apart."
Clarkson told Pop Justice that she thinks this is the best song on All I Ever Wanted as "it's different to anything else on the radio right now."
