[The song is] probably my favorite song in the movie. Compositionally, I'm more proud of that than any other song. Lyrically, it speaks to me quite a bit as a creative person in L.A. [...] And it came from a very pure place. With a lot of the other songs there was a lot of conversation leading up to them. There was a lot of back-and-forth with demos, loosely listening to references to get inspired. For "Audition", I wasn't really listening to anything. I wasn’t really trying to sound like anything. I was just composing at the piano, and for that reason, I think the song comes from a very pure place and I felt like I was really composing from a place of emotion.
