Although it was recorded in Bordeaux, most of the record was written on the road and at rehearsals while Eastwood and his band were on tour in the spring and summer of 2010. As the tour progressed, so did arrangements and concepts for the album. By the time they got to recording at Chateau Couronneau the band was already very comfortable with the music and was free to let the beautiful setting inspire them.
Eastwood goes on to explain, "The whole idea of the project was to have a little break after the tour was over and take our time and record in a very relaxed way." The group also reveled in the natural sound that came from recording live in the living room of the Chateau. "We went in and recorded the way we would usually play a gig and I think this album really captures the way this band plays and interacts musically in a live setting."
