This album is different from the previous ones according to the lead singer Koenig.

The record features an array of collaborators, including RostamBatmanglij, marking the first time the band has included guest vocalists in an album. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Ezra Koenig said, “We’ve had three albums of the same voice over and over again. I like the idea of opening up our world a little bit.”
