Songfacts®:

  • This instrumental threads a sample of a voiceover from a Carl Sagan film through an oceanic wall of sound. Guitarist Tom Searle commented to HMV.com: "It's an odd one, we don't have many instrumentals. It was originally half a song, but it was too weird for us. It's named after the biggest known star in the universe, we saw a picture of it once and it kind of reminded us of the scale of everything."
