In a statement, singer/songwriter Cerveris said, "['Dog Eared'] was my way of making one big alternative reality. I have such a literal or emotional connection with all these people and it seemed as if they all belonged in the same room together . . . and that room became this record." The single disc was produced by Cerveris and Adam Lasus. The complete track listing follows:
"Can't Feel My Soul"
