Speaking about ‘Now Is The Time’, Bird said in a statement: “‘Now Is The Time’ is the only song to have me smiling and laughing listening to it back in RCA. We had the Bee Gees in mind and soul, triple-tracking the vocals and putting a load of chorus on the guitar.
“I wrote it at the foot of our hotel bed in Mexico City. It’s a big motivational anthem for someone I want to put my arms around or lift them in the darkest time.”
Bird added of the song, which you can hear above: “Given that I wrote it mid-pandemic, the sentiment of getting to the backend of this hell is heavily felt now, when I play it live and do a two-step with my bass player!”
