The album's producer John Congleton said;
"Their agenda was the best agenda: they still love each other, they like playing music, so let's have fun. At the end of the day Blondie doesn't have anything to prove. My agenda was more dogmatic. I didn't wanna make a pastiche lifestyle record or a modern pop record that sounded like Blondie being influenced by what's happening now. I wanted Debbie to sing and sound like a woman who's older. I wanted to know what it's like to be Blondie at this age."
