All profits from the single will be donated to Operation Olive Branch, described as a “volunteer-powered grassroots collective effort to connect with and amplify Palestinian voices to support their critical needs, which include but are not limited to their mutual aid requests.”

The track's description says, “Shanti dials up the steaminess and lays down a groovy momentum. Evoking euphoria, this bubbly tech house roller is Shanti at her playful best!”

The single marks Shanti’ Celeste’s first official release since joining forces with Hessle Audio at the end of 2022 to release the ‘Cutie/Shimmer’ project, aside from a bootleg ‘Shanti's Barn Shanti's Rules’ released in October 2023 on her Bandcamp.

A recent compilation album entitled ‘Music for Palestine - We Will Stay Here’ was released in May, using a collection of samples from around the world of poetry, protests, and sound from within Palestine, with all proceeds going towards Medical Aid for Palestine.
