Having been auditioned for a number of previous albums, it finally found its home in the Asking For A Friend sessions as its themes spoke clearly to the entire band during 2020. We discuss the origins of the song, its improvisational evolution, the freedom with which the band approached its recording session, and where Bayliss sees the song evolving going forward. Talking Circles is a production of Osiris Media and Umphrey's McGee.
