Amy Shark said of the song;
"I sent [Hoppus] my demo of Psycho overnight and he wrote back and said 'I love it, let’s do it.'
It’s the first song I go to on the album at the moment. I just can’t stop listening to it. I’m addicted to it. Every time his voice drops in I’m just like, Mark Hoppus is on my album.
I never dreamed of having a member of Blink-182 on a song of mine, I’m shaking so bad I’m that excited. Thank you, Mark Hoppus, this is the greatest day of my life… I’m now going to go drink heavily somewhere."
- Mark Hoppus told Zane Lowe about this collaboration with Amy Shark;
"She was in Los Angeles, we met up for coffee. We were talking about an album that she was working on and she said 'Would you ever like to work on something together?' I said, 'Absolutely'.
Literally, two days later we were in Dave Grohl’s studio working on a song that she had an idea for that was really cool. She asked me to be a part of it and I produced it and sang on it. It turned out really well.
That’s the awesome balance of working with different artist and producing other bands and working with other people is you take their ideas and you bring your idea to it and hopefully you bring it to a better place. Amy had this great idea for a song and for me it was a lot easier than working with a lot of other artists because her music is so sparse.
A lot of times it’s just her and a guitar, so even just her an acoustic guitar and maybe a beat behind it. My job was really easy, I just had to not over add stuff to kill the idea that she already had."
