Bully

Album: Single Release Only (2013)
  • This confessional remembrance of a special friendship involving heavy alcoholic consumption in a Paris bar was released as a stand-alone single and performed by Chan Marshall on Later...With Jools Holland. She told Mojo magazine: "To tell the story of 'Bully' would be an injustice towards the love I shared with the love of my life. So I cannot speak about that. 'Bully' was one of the songs that I originally wrote for (2012 album) Sun, along with 14 others, but to play nice, I'll just say they didn't make the record. I'm glad 'Bully' was respected enough to see the light of the day. I'm happy in my life and when I sing this song, yeah, it breaks my heart."
