This was released as the first single from Sixx: A.M.'s third album Modern Vintage
. Guitarist DJ Ashba explained the record's title to Artist Direct
: "Modern Vintage
is very much what it is," he said. "It's all of our favorite bands that influenced us like Queen and those types of bands from the seventies. We're taking elements of the ragtime and disco stuff, sonically, and putting more of a modern production and modern twist on them."
"When we finished the album, the name came up because we were trying to describe what we had created with this album because we knew it was very special," Ashba continued. "Once the name came up, we knew there was no better name to describe this record."
