Vocalist Daniel Winter-Bates explained the song's meaning to Kerrang!: "'Man on Fire' is about depression and 'unseen' illnesses, whether it's clinically diagnosed or simply finding yourself feeling in a depressed space and that no-one else understands you," he said. "The fire is the illness, if you will."
Winter-Bates recalled the shooting of the music clip. "We filmed the video outside an old scout hut – rock 'n' roll! - and made the burning run with a rope that was sprayed with kerosene. We had to be a bit careful not to step on it – though I did singe my leg a little bit!"
"The flame jets behind us were just amazing – there was one that shot 25 to 40 feet, and they made an incredible noise when they went off! It was one of those badass rockstar moments, like, 'Yep, we've definitely got pyro now!'"
"Cruise" climbed from 6-5 on the Hot 100 in its 34th week. In doing so it set a record for the slowest ascent to the Top 5 in the chart's history, which was beaten by Imagine Dragon's "Radioactive" 42-week clamber to #4 three weeks later.
Country star Slim Whitman's version of the 1920s song "Rose Marie" spent 11 consecutive weeks at #1 in the UK in 1955, a record until 1991 when Bryan Adams’ "(Everything I Do) I Do It For You" spent 16 weeks at the top.
