Inspired by the concept of a video, AYO wrote ‘Castaway’ around the idea of being cast away on a deserted island.
”We had an idea to shoot a video in open spaces and on a deserted beach. When Chany came to the studio, we came up with the concept first and then wrote and recorded the whole song that night.’
