Two days later, the song was offered as a download bundle with S.S.T. and Mavis Staples' You Will Be Moved. Eight weeks later, the track was included on the CD single of S.S.T..

Basic tracking took place on 2 September 2005 at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota, based around the final instrumental section of S.S.T., which was recorded at the same session.
