On September 04, 2013, Robert DeLeo spoke to Rolling Stone about the song: "Chester wrote that one. You always have a bank of songs that are hanging out, but for this it really was a matter of erasing the board, starting over again. That was a really big inspiration for me, to have this chance to wipe the slate clean and really start over again with this new energy."
Chester Bennington also talked about the song in an interview with ArtistDirect on March 31, 2015: "“Cry Cry” is an interesting song. That was actually a track I brought in, which is another really fun experience. I get to be in a band with some of the greatest writers in modern music with Linkin Park, and then I get to be in a band with two more of the greatest writers in modern music [Laughs]. For me to bring in a song and have the guys go, “I like this!” is really cool. With that track, I had that link. I wrote that part. I had the melody. I came in the next day, and I said, “Guys, check this out! Let me know what you think of it.” I played it. They loved it, and we started recording it. It was a really cool song for me because it’s nice to see that I something I write will be appreciated by guys I admire as writers. I was stoked that they liked it. I think the song turned out great."
