Golden Days is the culmination of a musical journey that spans ten years and has helped fuel the vanguard of 21st century soul alongside the Dap Kings, Charles Bradley, Lee Fields, and Mayer Hawthorne.

The song sets the tone for an album packed with potential singles, each fashioned by a sonic imprint that's unique to Mamas Gun.
