When asked why she chose to cover the song Odette told triple J “I’d actually seen an interview that Dave [Le’aupepe] did with SBS and it really resonated with me, I think. His complete honesty and bravery and just expression, I really admire him for it. So I definitely wanted to pay homage to that in this cover.”
