Let It Come Down is James Iha's first and currently only solo album. It was released in 1998, during which Iha was still with The Smashing Pumpkins, before the release of Adore. Iha took on a more acoustic country-ish sound reminiscent of the songs he contributed to the Pumpkins, notably shying away from the darker sound of Billy Corgan's songwriting.
Iha had said that the quieter tone of the songs reflected the fact that many of them were written in his hotel rooms during Smashing Pumpkins tours, and he didn't want to disturb other guests by playing too loudly.
"Be Strong Now" was released as a 4 track single, featuring the bonus tracks "Falling", "My Advice" and "Take Care" and as a 2 track promo single, track 2 is a 12 second clip from the song "Be Strong Now" called "call out hook". Both versions of the "Be Strong Now" single feature the same cover.
