Speaking to Rolling Stone about the album, Barnett explains that the seeds for it were sewn amongst the minutiae of COVID lockdowns, with music providing her with something to work towards.

“On the one hand, nothing was happening to me last year,” she explains. “But at the same time, so much was happening! There’s that lyric in ‘Turning Green’ about flowers in the weeds — as in, finding beauty in a place where you least expect it. That’s my ongoing lesson for myself.”
