Regarding the title, Hiatt and his band were in the studio on August 21, 2017 when a solar eclipse travelled the length of the continental US. “I think we recorded three songs that day, and then we took a break to go outside and watch everything happen,” Hiatt says. “It seemed everything stopped for a minute or two. It was like a magical little bit of time, a harmonic convergence or something. Like everybody was on the same page.”
