“Spencer is an amazing writer," says Halpern. "This song is one that he wrote out and demoed. A lot of people don’t know that can play so many instruments – guitar, bass, drums, keys, everything – so when he’s inspired to compose something, he can do it all himself.
“He brought the song to our attention, and we all loved it. We took what he had written and sort of elaborated on some of the parts. It’s a really high-energy song, and it’s got a great message – Spencer’s feelings about people needing to wake up and live their lives to the fullest.
“I’ve been playing it for a while, so when it came to tracking, I knew my parts perfectly. It turned out great. It remained very true to Spencer’s demo, but I definitely added some spice.”
