"Andrew sent me the song and I was like, man, Aubrey could kill this song, it would be so great," shared Pine.
"Aubrey is so cool man," said Copperman. "Forty five minutes and we had the vocals down. She's that great of a singer." "Ross did an amazing job and Aubrey just killed the vocals. It sounds incredible," said Rollins, who has now had three songs featured on the show.
"All the people in this show, they kind of put songwriters as the stars, as the rock stars...I love that. It's such an honor to have a song in the show, but to have two and now to have three... It's been a really good ride so far," added Rollins.
