When the lead single “Here's to the Nights” was released, Ringo Starr said in a statement, “When Diane presented this song to me I loved the sentiment of it. This is the kind of song we all want to sing along to, and it was so great how many wonderful musicians joined in. I wanted it out in time for New Years' because it feels like a good song to end a tough year on. So here's to the nights we won't remember and the friends we won't forget – and I am wishing everyone peace and love for 2021.”
