Lifehouse lead singer Jason Wade
co-wrote the track with producer and manager Jude Cole. Wade told Billboard
magazine it is reminiscent of the band's early work. "'Hurricane' started as a catchy up-tempo pop song and then transformed into this electric, energetic rock song that was very reminiscent of our first album," he said. "I feel like it is the backbone of the record, and was the catalyst that brought our band back around full circle."
