Lead singer and producer Dave Bayley commented on the new single:
Someone told me a story about her son once that was one of the saddest things i’ve ever heard. What she said was completely heartbreaking, but she told it with such optimism and such a sense of calm. She was on the verge of crying, but she was also smiling and something in her face said that she had found a way to be happy again. This song is trying to get at that sentiment.
