This was the first single released from American rock band Phish's fourteenth studio album Joy. It was their first single release in five years since "Connection" in 2004.
This was originally a multi-movement work for strings, guitar, and vocals released as an album by guitarist Trey Anastasio. Pianist Page McConnell explained to Billboard magazine: "It's a piece that he wrote for an orchestral arrangement and played for a couple of different symphonies around the country. We recorded it in a really cool way that I enjoyed. Steve [Lillywhite, producer] had some really good ideas about how to record that song and I think it's through his production that it came to life."
