• Bassist JoJo Garza told Billboard magazine about this prayerful song: "'Forgiven' is kind of like 'Heaven' in that it's about asking for help from the Lord through hard times. But at the end of the darkness, there's still a light. That's something Los Lonely Boys have always talked about."
  • Steve Jordan produced the album. Jordan's CV includes producing and playing with John Mayer and tours with Keith Richards, The Blues Brothers and Eric Clapton.
  • The album was recorded on a soundstage, like a live show. The San Antonio News July 4, 2008 asked JoJo Garza why it was done that way. The bassist replied: "For one thing, the last two album we had done, we always felt, like, it wasn't being captured, what we do live wasn't being captured. When we met Steve Jordan, he said, 'I know how to get this sound. Because you guys have a swing that isn't coming out in your records. I can see it and I can hear it live, and we're gonna get that.'"
