Singer Andrew Frongillo commented:

When I initially heard the main riff for “Wild Hair”, for some reason, it had this bright, happy aura to it and I felt that the lyrics needed to flow with that feeling. I was reading a book to my daughter one night and I had the melody that I wanted but no lyrics. As I watched my daughter fall asleep, that’s when the words came to me. I ran to my office to hop on my computer to type up what was in my head. This song is an ode to my daughter, a promise that as her father I will always protect her from the darkness in this world, both in her mind and in the physical world. Becoming a father has changed me for the better but in some ways put a canyon full of deeper fear inside my head. The title of the song came from my daughters, wild, untamable, mane of hair. May she stay as wild & free as her beauty, curly locks.“
