Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This is the first single taken from English alternative rock band The Doves' best-of compilation, titled The Places Between: The Best of Doves. The song was recorded in the barn in Cheshire, England where Kingdom of Rust was taped. It received its first airplay on Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show on March 3, 2010.
Andalucia (sometimes known as Andalusia) is the name of a fertile autonomous region of southern Spain. Much of Doves body of work is an ode to the north of England but in this song it appears they are singing of warmer pastures.
Doves' Jimi Goodwin explained to Spinner UK the The Places Between: The Best of Doves album title. "It's inspired by a book by Rory Stewart, The Places In Between, it just seems to fit because it bookends this part of our life. It's closing the last 12 years. We've all read his story now, it's an inspiring journey this guy did after the invasion of Afghanistan. He traveled on his own from village to village. The guy's got balls."
