In a press statement, Gilligan said ‘Up All Night’ is about “the snap decision to go out, to stay up all night, to replace lovers with friends, to dance with a room full of strangers and sweat, to take drugs, to scream along and to blackout from drinking and full-body exhaustion”.

Gilligan went on to explain that this is her “perfect version of that night”.

“[My] idea of the perfect version of myself; someone who is fun, and chaotic, and the life of the party – not who I am, which is anxious, chronically sad, and frightened of drugs and blacking out and making out with strangers.”

On collaborating with Lahey and Japanese Wallpaper, Gilligan said, “It was something I will never forget – I love those two incredibly talented people so much, and to write such a special song with them is something I will never take for granted”.
