“Being asked to do a track for the D&D soundtrack seemed like an unmissable opportunity to indulge my long-standing love of fantasy prog rock,” Parker said in a press release. “I recruited my good friend Nicholas Allbrook, who is the person I know who appreciates this subject the most. We rented a villa in Spain, which felt like a castle, for two nights during the Spring tour. That location put us in the right frame of mind and we went from there. We stay up late with weird ideas and song lyrics.”
