Album: and the Anonymous Nobody... (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • This almost didn't make the cut of Anonymous Nobody, as the trio couldn't find a suitable vocalist. "We just could not find the individual who would be the feature on this record. It was one of those songs where we have to do this," Dave told Billboard magazine.

    Eventually, the group came across Darkness vocalist Justin Hawkins. "Two and a half years of trying to figure out what's going to make that record work, we finally landed on the lead singer of The Darkness," he said.
