The 29-year-old musician, Wolfgang, explained the origins of the songs and also revealed it was never supposed to be his debut single. The musician, on his statement, wrote,
"As my pop continued to struggle with various health issues, I was imagining what my life would be like without him and how terribly I’d miss him."

Wolfgang further added,
"While the song is incredibly personal, I think anyone can relate to the idea of having a profound loss in their life; I never intended 'Distance' to be the very first piece of music people would hear from me, but I also thought my father would be here to celebrate its release. This is for him."
