After a year's absence of making music with 'N Sync, Chasez teamed up with friend and producer Dallas Austin to write the song "Blowin' Me Up (With Her Love)", for the Drumline movie soundtrack. Following the single's success, Chasez began writing a record; a record which he intended to be in a different style from that commonly associated with 'N Sync. The album includes a range of dance and electronic music, live strings and traditional rock and roll, with a 1980s vibe to it. The song "Come To Me" includes a sample of Corey Hart's 1983 hit "Sunglasses At Night". All songs on the album were co-written and co-produced by Chasez (except "Shake It"). He worked with producers such as Dallas Austin, Rob Boldt, Basement Jaxx and Rip Rock.
