Of this third album, Bruno told Billboard, "This record I really wanted to make a rock n' roll/pop album. And I say pop how we grew up listening to that in the sense of Dire Straits or Born In The U.S.A. or the Cars or Tom Petty or something like that. I felt like this was my opportunity do something like that because I haven't heard something quite like that in a long time. So I said, 'I'm gonna make Born In The U.S.A., AWOLNATION style.'"
