Depeche Mode principal songwriter Martin Gore told The Sun April 3, 2009 that he thought that this midtempo stomper that touches on recovering from alcoholism is one of his favorite songs that he has ever written. Gore explained: "That and 'Little Soul' give the album a kind of thread. Both of those songs have a real spiritual feel, though we have to be really careful using that word. I really don't want to sound new-age with all this talk about giving up drinking. There's just a sort of spiritual feel to some of the tracks and that's why to Sounds of the Universe worked well as a title."
Frontman Dave Gahan told The Guardian March 21, 2009: "For me it represents the joy and ecstasy of everything looking better, tasting better, sounding better."

Shears does very little promotion, which has kept him secluded from the spotlight. What changed when Cyndi Lauper had a hit with his song? Not much, really.
