“I wrote this in the darkest days of the pandemic when things really felt unhinged, and it’s filled with little Easter eggs of the moment… baking bread and all that stuff,” Tim Heidecker explained in a press release. “At the last minute I changed the last line to be a question rather than a statement because I didn’t want it to be a total bummer. I hope it doesn’t ruin anyone’s day! Also I don’t think there’s a way to sing, ‘This world’s on fire,’ and NOT sound like Bruce Springsteen.”
Last year, Tim Heidecker released his album Fear of Death. Read the interview “Tim Heidecker and Weyes Blood on Making a Groovy Album About Death” on the Pitch.
