Of the album's debut single, “Next Ride Around the Sun,” Baumann told Billboard, "The song was born from an appreciation for the here and now. I remember talking with my father-in-law one night and him saying, ‘enjoy every second.’ He seemed so earnest and genuine when he was saying it to me. And it stuck. It’s truly apropos to the time we’re living in, but it’s an ethos that we should heed all the time.”
