  • The band said of this tribute to New Orleans on their MySpace site: "We felt it very important to show our adoration for one of our favorite cities and one of the most culturally rich and vibrant places in the world."
  • Bassist Matt Freeman said: "I feel the bass line is a tribute to (Booker T.& the M.G.s bass guitarist) Donald 'Duck' Dunn. It has a lot of his style. New Orleans is an important city to any musician that has ever been there. We have been lucky enough to have been going there since the '80s with Operation Ivy. I know it will come back. It's that special and resilient a place."
  • Guitarist Lars Frederiksen is the lead vocalist on this song.
