Songfacts®:

  • This was one of the last songs that the band recorded during their Intimacy sessions. Though it wasn't included on the advance download version of the album, it was released as a single ahead of its inclusion on the CD and it was given away as a free download for everyone who bought the digital download of the album. Singer and songwriter Kele Okereke explained on the band's website: "I always had it in mind to be one of the extra tracks we promised for the CD if it turned out well. It turned out great so we decided to make it the next single."
