Leading up to the release date, Ray Dorset released video clips of him introducing the songs on the album.
Ray Dorset explains the idea behind the second track on the album, “Got to Have a Plan” – “in my opinion, if you wanna get somewhere, and you wanna get something done, you must have a plan. And this is a very funky track, and it’s groovy.”
He goes onto elaborate on the third track titled “Hey, Mr Teacher,” a song about a plea for a teacher to teach him about life, love, and everything else in between. Dorset confesses that he is especially fond of the lyrics to this track.
