Songfacts®:

  • Roxy Music guitarist Phil Manzanera co-produced the song and contributed acoustic guitar. "It was a track that Phil put together from two or three pieces of music of mine that I had sort of ignored," Gilmour said. "He's very good at finding them and saying "that's great you should use it…. how about that piece with this piece, So he mocked up that one as a gift."

    Manzanera also co-produced Gilmour's 2006 album On An Island.
  • The video was directed by Aubrey "Po" Powell, who co-founded the album cover design company Hipgnosis with Storm Thorgerson in 1967. The clip features footage from a concert in Brighton, UK, Gilmour's first stop on his 2015-2016 tour.

    Hipgnosis' first ever album cover was for Pink Floyd's second LP, A Saucerful of Secrets, which was Gilmour's debut with the band.
