Cantrell added that the new record wouldn't have any guest stars like they did with Elton John last time, saying, "That's just the universe lining up right. I had nothing to do with that other than asking. What he is, beyond anything else, is a fucking amazing musician. And he's the guy who inspired me to start playing music, so to have him play on one of our records – especially such a meaningful record, where we're restarting our musical careers and saying goodbye and honoring our buddy – it's a tremendous thing".
