The song is expected for inclusion in his forthcoming compilation record, Post Spirit 1974 – 1978 Vol. 1. The record is scheduled for release Oct. 7. The musical arrangement featured in the song is a catchy classic rock style composition that immediately lends itself to comparison to works from the likes of the Eagles.
