Young told Rolling Stone that the album’s title track and lead single “is the most pop-leaning song I’ve ever done… But there’s a lot of stuff on this record that’s really traditional-leaning, too. My voice is unabashedly country, but I do think this is a very in-the-moment record.” Young wrote every song on the album, collaborating with producer Corey Crowder on several.

Critical reception
Rating it 4 out of 5 stars, Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic wrote that ” Every element of Losing Sleep unfolds so easily, it feels inevitable, and it’s so polished it can seem like nothing but mood music, but repeated plays reveal that this is more than atmosphere”.
