The demo of lead single ‘Father Of All…’ was used on the album and not re-recorded in these sessions.
Principle recording for the album was done at RubyRed Studio but the vocals were recorded by Billie Joe himself at the bands home studio, OTIS.
‘Art Of The Deal With The Devil’ was originally slated for this album but ended up being cut and later re-recorded by their side project, The Network, on the album Money Money 2020: Part II.
‘Here Comes The Shock’ was released in February of 2021 as a standalone digital single. The song was produced by Butch Walker so it seems very likely to be one of the leftover songs from these sessions.
Aside from ‘Art Of The Deal With The Devil’ & ‘Here Comes The Shock’, five other songs were also recorded that didn’t make the album. It’s likely that some of those were also released on Money Money 2020: Part II but we have no official confirmation.
