Commenting on the track, The Covasettes said:  “From the minute we finished Wild, it was a song we were immediately excited about and it quickly became a staple in our setlist. We’ve been sitting on Wild for a while now and we’re so excited to be finally releasing it, it’s definitely the most hyped we’ve been for a song. Whenever we play Wild live, people always seem to get behind it and it creates such a great atmosphere in the room, so releasing Wild after Top Drawer was the obvious next step for us and we’re looking forward to seeing what the world has to say about it!”
