When Max Green was asked about the song he stated, ‘“Crazy’ is one of my favorite songs on the album, It has a great energy to it, and lyrically, I feel like it’s something everyone can relate to in some aspect. It was the second video we shot, and it came together really organically. We rented this rad warehouse that had a bunch of salvage and constructed everything there on the spot.
