  • This energized track had the working title "Gospel" for a long time until it was finished towards the end of recording.
  • At one point this was included on The Next Day and moved up and down the tracklisting, then it was off the album, then back on. Ultimately it was designated to be a bonus track for the Japanese album release, as well as featuring on the expanded three-disc collector's edition of the LP, The Next Day Extra.
