On the creating of the track, Vicks had this to say in a statement to Beneath the Radar: “‘Hate Ya 2’ is about attempting to grapple with conflicting feelings. When you nonetheless have appreciate for somebody who can also make you really feel undervalued and hurt, and how confusing that knowledge can be.The course of action of recording this song felt extremely cathartic. Frequently, rather of tracking to a metronome, Stephen [Steinbrink] would come up with a programmed beat on his laptop or computer and I’d record to that rather of a click. We ended up truly liking how the electronic drums sounded with this song and decided to maintain them. Stephen and I drove out to my parent’s residence with my pal Rose Droll to have her record piano on a handful of songs from the record, and when she played along to this 1 we tracked a handful of requires of her improvising. It added such a gorgeous melancholic element, in correct Rose Droll style.” 

Recorded in a studio set up in a rented shipping container that her pal Stephen Steinbrink constructed, Free of charge Organization finds Vicks opening up their recording course of action to include things like mates and collaborators for the 1st time.
