Kravitz wrote the songs for Strut
during his stay in Atlanta, Georgia, while filming The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
. If he looks tired in the movie, it's because he stayed up for two weeks working on music. He told New Sounds
: "All of this music came into my head. You have to make a choice. You let it go and sleep or capture it. My choice was to capture it because I have to. I stayed up for about two weeks. I didn't sleep for two weeks. Maybe an hour every couple nights I got."
