Alt-J recorded "Losing My Mind" for their fourth album, The Dream
. The record's huge body count comes from Newman's obsession with true crime podcast My Favourite Murder
. "I find it fascinating how detached we are from that side of the human condition," he explained to The Independent
. "You go to Epping Forest and there are bodies buried, and you just walk past it. You turn on the news and something awful has happened but you're so disconnected from it because there are divides between you and what you're watching."
