Songfacts®:

  • Produced by frequent Passion Pit collaborator Chris Zane, this song finds Chloe Howl urging herself to do the right thing.

    "Knowingly being the other woman is the ultimate crime against girl code for me", she explained. "So when I could see things were getting closer between me and a man who was taken I wrote 'Do It Alone' as an ode to all the reasons why I would never ever take that role, even if I wanted to."
