The standalone song comes following the June 2023 full-length album Paranoia, Angels, True Love, which according to the artist is the "second part of an operatic gesture that also encompassed 2022’s Redcar les adorables étoiles." That album takes inspiration from Tony Kushner's Pulitzer and Tony-award-winning play, Angels in America. At the time of the album's release, Chris explained: "[it] is a key towards heart-opening transformation, a prayer towards the self – the one that breathes through all the loves it is made of. Prior’s real agony in Angels in America is a deep, painful becoming, a shedding of all waters and memories, that then allows angels to immerse deep too, and offer back profound, narrative-altering love – a rest in true love."

In the interim between the two projects, Chris contributed to a "dream collaboration" with Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser, better known as MGMT. In an interview with People in February, Chris explained, "I've always been a true fan of their music. I had a lover in my life that lived in London, too, and we shared a common passion for MGMT records at that time."

He added, "As a musician, I always listen to the music with both my emotion and my own practice. They helped me make music."
