This was recorded during the sessions for 2017's Emperor Of Sand album, and was produced by Brendan O'Brien. It was left off the record but was later included on Mastodon's Cold Dark Place EP. Guitarist Bill Kelliher explained to Kaytie of the Razor 94.7 radio station:
"It's very catchy; it's a very good song. I think when we heard it, we were, like… We weren't sure. I was, like, 'I don't know.' I was, like, 'I like it. I think it sounds awesome.' And Brent (Hinds, guitar) was, like, 'I don't think it should go on the record.' Honestly, I was, like, 'I think we have enough good songs on the record that that's not gonna make or break it. Maybe we'll take that one off and put it as a single later. Maybe we'll add it to the other songs, remix 'em and put out Cold Dark Place.' And that's what ended up happening."
