Kinsella has stated in interviews that the album was composed over the course of about two years, with the early drum work beginning while he was on tour with a reunited Cap'n Jazz in 2010. Sources of inspiration for the record included his first experiences as a father, exploring his old home and defending his beliefs.[5]
