Talking about the song, showrunner, Lauren S Hissrich told Digital Spy,
Jenny Klein wrote the words to that song, and then we would take those lyrics, and Sonya and Giona would start working on basically music for them. And it was an incredible collaboration.
We’d go back and forth. They would send me several different versions. ‘Here’s a more upbeat version’, ‘Here’s a more sort of anthem’, ‘Here’s a version that’s reflective of the mood of the episode, which is much more sort of reflective’.
