She started to write the songs at the end of 2016 for the new album and wrote 30 songs. The album comprises of 9-track.
Jeen told billboard about the song;
"It's a bit of an ode to introverts. Being an anti-social person by nature, this music industry is obviously a tricky one to navigate for someone like that. So the song touches on using medical marijuana to calm my nerves, to medicate me a little bit. That's what was in my head.
"It's fabulous. It's kind of a shame it's not more available to people for different things. There's a real need for something like that, aside from pills or anything. But it definitely gave me the inspiration for (the song)."
- Jeen is known as a member of the currently on-hiatus group Cookie Duster. Also she has written for many recording artists such as Great Big Sea, Serena Ryder, Res, Hawksley Workman, Brendan Canning, FUWA FUWA (j-pop) and Martin “Doc” McKinney to name a few.
To date, she has released two albums such as Tourist" (2015) and "Modern Life" (2016).
