  • Neil Young and Crazy Horse recorded this epic 13-and-a-half minute cut for Colorado, their first studio album since 2012's Psychedelic Pill. If you think that's long, check out the 27-and-a-half minute "Driftin' Back" they laid down for Psychedelic Pill.
  • Young and co. recorded the record in April 2019 at the Studio In The Clouds, just outside Telluride, Colorado. The lineup includes Young, guitarist Nils Lofgren, bassist Billy Talbot and drummer Ralph Molina. It was the first Crazy Horse album Lofgren had played on since their 1971 self-titled record.
  • Like many other Crazy Horse songs, this came out of extended jam sessions by Young with his backing band. Nils Lofgren recalled to Uncut magazine:

    "That was one where we got to an arrangement of the song – which we barely knew – and then followed Neil into this jam. We just didn't stop! I thought we were just getting used to the groove of the song. But 13 minutes later, there we were. It was a bunch of old friends reconnecting and discovering what they've always had."
  • Young has long been an environmental activist but in 2018 his crusade against climate change became personal after he lost a home in Malibu, California, to a wildfire. This protest song finds him ranting against the "old white guys trying to kill mother nature."
