Back At It

Album: Neon Blood Type (2021)


  • "Back At It" is the first single from Zayde Wolf's third album, Neon Blood Type. It's not subtle, with a pounding beat and fist-pumping lyric.

    Wolf's music is designed to mesh with exciting scenes in video games, movies and TV shows, and is often used in promos to build anticipation. By keeping the message simple and motivational, he helps songs like this one get placements.
  • Zayde Wolf - real name Dustin Burnett - started out making pop music for radio and producing for other artists, but found his calling in the world of music for licensing. Considering his thumping sounds, you might be surprised to learn that he's a big fan of yacht rock, and has eclectic taste in music.

    Neon Blood Type was his first album pressed on vinyl, and he used that as an excuse to buy a record player. When he appeared on the Songfacts Podcast in 2021, he talked about the records he added to his collection. "I have some new albums like Harry Styles' new stuff, which is perfect in my opinion," he said. "Then there's some Lana Del Rey, then we go all the way back to Led Zeppelin and through to the '80s to Bruce Springsteen and that kind of stuff. Even some Michael Jackson, Queen. I love a huge variety of stuff, it all depends on my mood. If I'm going to be sitting by the swimming pool, it's almost always going to be a yacht rock playlist. If I'm driving, it's either rock or EDM."
