The song was originally written for Lee’s scrapped solo album, mouth of a river, recorded after iamamiwhoami’s bounty in 2010, as a prequel to 2014’s BLUE. This version wasn’t released until 2020, as part of the KRONOLOGI playlist.
On February 21, 2019, Lee also released the “ASCEND edit”, an alternate version of the song produced entirely by herself. It came with an edited version of the original video.
The mouth of a river version was released on May 15, 2020, on the KRONOLOGI playlist, under the title “mouth’s open sea”. This version includes slightly different lyrics, aligning better with its alternate title, “pirates”.
