The artist releases Ticks, from his album, 5th Gear. When asked about writing humorous songs:

I think it’s all in the timing. It’s like fishing. It’s baiting the hook and knowing when to set it. In ‘Ticks’ you bait them and go all the way down the chorus to ‘I’d like to walk you through a field of wild flowers.’ I could have ended it then with ‘So let’s take a drive’ (laughs). But that’s not setting the hook. After ‘I’d like to walk you through a field of wildflowers’ the ball is sitting on the T, so you swing and give it a line like ‘And I’d like to check you for ticks.
