Kravitz told CNN, "I had to put my priorities in order. Witnessing a death, or rather a transformation into the next, really made me think about my life. I had great success and wasn't enjoying a lot of it. That's sad. I decided that if I wasn't going to have some sort of enjoyment out of something, I wasn't going to do it. So when I went into the studio, it was a real free experiences. I felt as though it was my first record again, and that was a blessing... My main objective this time was to have fun, which is why I got into it in the first place." The track "Thinking Of You" on 5 is a tribute to Kravitz's mother. Another track, "Little Girl's Eyes" was written as a birthday gift for his 9 year-old daughter.
