BackgroundEdit

In an interview with Las Vegas Weekly, Ronson described the album as "definitely the best thing" he has ever made and the album he has worked the hardest on. He also agreed that the album contains "sad bangers", as those are the kinds of songs that have "emotional resonance" and that he was drawn to making during the writing and recording process.[9]
