Background[edit | edit source]
Some fans speculate that the track was intended to be included on Lust for Life, however was cut prior to the album being released. The song may originate from the same sessions as "Beautiful People," as it was registered alongside it and was also written with Justin Parker. This may also indicate "Wild One" being an outtake from the Honeymoon sessions, as "Beautiful People" was also considered for inclusion on the album.
