Akidagain

Songfacts®:

  • This song was produced by Grammy winning record producer and three-time world champion DJ Infamous. McCoy told Alternative Press: "He played it for me and I was like, 'Whoa, this is perfect. I know exactly what I'm going to do with this song. Just dig in the vaults for all the nostalgic stuff and all the things I miss from being a kid.'"
  • McCoy explained the song: "'Akidagain' is kind of self-explanatory. It's broken down into three parts: One when I was young, one when I was a little bit older and then one where I'm at now, reflecting on when I was a kid. It just talks about all the crazy stuff that goes on when you're a kid--smashing windows and running from the cops, things like that. Then you get to the third verse, and it's reflecting on that and missing it."
    We did an interpretation of a mod song from back in the day. We had the Betty White Kids Choir sing it. You can't really lose with kids on an album. [Laughs.]"
