Wyatt grew up on Perry Street in Manhattanin the 1980s. At 18, he and musician Greg Kurstin formed the short-lived experimental pop band Funkraphiliacs, whereupon he was signed to Capitol Records as a solo artist. He worked on the album in Bath, UK, at Peter Gabriel's Real World studios for about a year, with the Pet Shop Boys and Siouxsie Sioux producer Stephen Hague, until chemical dependency and psychological issues forced him into hospitalization at New York's Payne Whitney Psychiatric Clinic. Surmising that a major label release with its incumbent pressures was not realistic, it was decided that a period of respite was needed. Wyatt moved to a small mountain town in Colorado for several years, and he briefly attended the University of Colorado.
