Sons of the Sea is a collaboration between Incubus frontman Brandon Boyd and producer Brendan O'Brien, who has helmed several Incubus albums. The project started with the pair wondering what would happen if they just sat down and wrote songs together. The duo started exchanging ideas, including a Boyd vocal that eventually turned into this song. The Incubus singer recalled to Billboard magazine that a day after sending it to O'Brien, "he called me at a friend's house and he's all excited like 'Check this out!' And he played me back my voice recording but then played the guitar part along with it, and that was really all we needed to really say like, 'Let's actually do this. There's something here.'"
The Frozen song "Let It Go" was recorded in 42 different languages for the movie's foreign releases. This earned it an entry in the 2016 Guinness World Records publication for "Most Languages Featured on a Single."
