"Last Call" was included as a B-side on the single release.
Hudson explained the meaning of the song on her site in 2001.
- "I was struggling with the fact that I would have the huge responsibility of how others would be affected through what I was doing or saying on stage. I don't want to put on some kind of front that everything is good when it's not. I wanted to keep it real, but still give people hope. I was trying to figure out how to combine the two, so I put my gifts on the shelf for a period of time. I looked back and realized God was with me through this season of my life. He knew one day I would wake up and remember the amazing gift I was given and how so many other people would love to be on the stage that I had been letting collect dust."
"Search Me" was serviced to radio as the second single from Katy Hudson. The album was released on cassette on February 8, 2001. It was sent to radio stations and included different edits. Along with a radio version for "Last Call".
