The album was recorded in February 1998 at Hog Hill Mill, McCartney’s home in East Sussex. It was co-produced by Youth (Martin Glover), McCartney’s collaborator in The Fireman.
Two unreleased McCartney songs from October 1995 were sampled for the album. ‘Palo Verde’ contained a line from ‘Let Me Love You Always’, while ‘Bison’, ‘Auraveda’, and ‘7 a.m.’ all contained elements from ‘Hey Now (What Are You Looking at Me For?)’.
