This is the first single from Albert Hammond, Jr's Momentary Masters album. He told NME it's, "a song about figuring out what to do when what has defined you for a long time isn't any more."
Asked if he was aware of the 1996 Underworld hit of the same title, Hammond replied: "Oh, of course! I just thought it was an awesome phrase, and I felt like enough time had passed to be able to use it again."
Until December 5, 1998, a song had to be issued as a single to make the Hot 100. Aaliyah's "Try Again" was the first tune to top the chart based on airplay alone, without any sales figures being included.
