With The Way Of A Woman Daley recalls, “Both my co-writer (Cathy Diane) & I were going through some ‘Man’ problems and we were talking about it, as Girls will do. Our first draft, of the song, we wrote the lyric ‘The Way of a Woman in the Days of her Man’, because we were experiencing the day-to-day process and how we, as women, were handling it. But then we realized it was really about the beginnings of ‘losing a Man’ which we both did, eventually.”

Sutton, featuring instrumental performances by Hiroshi Upshur on keys and bass synth, James Gadson on drums, with Josh Sklair and Gregory Moore on guitar, and Dionyza Sutton on backing vocals.
