In addition to Starr, who played drums on the track, other musicians that provided instrumentation include Steve Lukather, Benmont Tench, Bruce Sugar, Nathan East, Jim Cox, Charlie Bisharat and Jacob Braun.

In a statement on the song, Starr said, “When Diane presented this song to me I loved the sentiment of it. This is the kind of song we all want to sing along to, and it was so great how many wonderful musicians joined in. I wanted it out in time for New Years’ because it feels like a good song to end a tough year on. So here’s to the nights we won’t remember and the friends we won’t forget – and I am wishing everyone peace and love for 2021.”
