This is one of three tracks on Battle Born that the band penned with Daniel Lanois. Drummer Ronnie Vannucci, Jr told Spinner how The Killers hooked up with the famed producer. "We met him a few years ago and sort of kept in touch," he explained. "Sort of on a whim... he was in LA, we talked about doing the record, seeing if he wants to be involved at all, and produce some s--t. And the way he produces is, he likes to play. He's a player. He's a musician first, a producer second, in my opinion. And he got in there with us and we spent maybe five or six days together and we would just write songs together. He was in the band for a week. We would write a song and run it down four or five times, get it right, just dudes on headphones looking at each other."
