The song began taking shape during the 2022 summer after The Way of Water
producer Jon Landau met the Weeknd during his world tour.
"When he came in, Swedish House Mafia came up with the concept of the song, and they embraced working with our composer, Simon Franglen," Landau told Complex
at The Way of Water
London premiere. "And together, they came up with a song that is true to who The Weeknd is but is organic to our film. And that's what was important to us. We didn't want just something to come on at the end of the movie that felt outside of it, but he embraced that collaboration, and his voice, oh my God."
