Parker spoke to Dancing Astronaut about the release and working with his father. He shares,
“When I made the first version of ‘Mana’ I liked it, but didn’t love it. I just knew there was something missing. That’s when I came up with the idea to record my dad playing guitar on it. After a few takes, the track was finally completed. It was a really cool experience to finally bring my dad onto one of my tracks.”
