AmirSaysNothing played as a support act on Mike Shinoda's Outbreak Tour in 2018. In February 2019 they got together to work on new music.[3] A January 2nd release for the collaboration was announced on December 29, 2019.[4] The title of the track, along with artwork and a snippet, was revealed the following day.[5][6] "Clockwatch", produced by Mike Shinoda, is one of two clock themed songs released on the same day. The other being titled "The Times", produced by Wyatt Stromer. Artwork for the tracks was based on photographies by Khalilah Pianta[5] and it revealed a February 23 release date for Amir's debut album, which also happens to be his birthday.[7][8][9][10] However, the album wasn't released on this date as he was still working on the final details.[11][12][13] A second song produced by Mike Shinoda will be in the album[14][15] and had a music video shot on January 5 with director Dylan Park.[16][17]

Through Twitter, Amir thanked Linkin Park fans for their support. "just wanna send some love out to all the Linkin Park fans who have been showing love and are hyped on this music. i love your energy and i can feel everyone of you. thank you for checking me out and hopefully you find you like me and are in for the long haul. #BIGLOVE"[18]
