Of the single, Bazzi
says "'Young & Alive' was really me just getting back to my roots and looking for that youth in myself again. It's interesting because this song has such a bright, full of life type energy to it, but when making it I didn't feel that way. When making it I was in a darker place and while making it, I was almost opening myself up back to that and going back to that pure kid-like state which we all chase, and that's where the magic was, that present-ness. 'Young & Alive' is me trying to capture that feeling and give it to people, so we can share it and find warmth in it. I hope the world enjoys."
