Associate artist Harvey created the song cycle with the intention of writing about individual responses to global adversity without writing specifically about the pandemic.

The creative team also includes musical supervisor Freddie Tapner, creative director Ryan Carter, sound designer Harry Smith, and director of photography Ben Collins, supported by Ben Thomas and Alex Tabrizi.
