It serves as a follow up to his debut extended play “The Lone STAR” which was released 13 January, 2016 as it explore similar issues but in darker themes. The mixtape was preceded by three singles: “Ü Know I need Ü”, “It’s a Miracle (13 Clouds)” and the lead Single “U Don’t Know My Story”. The mixtape is predominantly Pop but contains elements of R&B/Soul, Gospel, Trap, Cloud Rap, Dancehall, Electro-Pop, Afro-Pop, Classical, Synth-Pop, New Age and Rock.
On the Mixtape Noah says: “This mixtape is a movie in my head as was “The Lone STAR”. It’s plot is set after “Star-Struck”. “Star-Struck” ended on a lively note, but this starts with a chaotic and angry feel, takes some turns and ends on a more confident and in some way braggadocios one.”
The mixtape was recorded between July 2016 and July 2017 and was solely written, performed, produced, recorded, mixed and mastered by Noah.
