  • Empire Of The Sun close their Ice On The Dune album with this big ballad, which features a gospel choir. Frontman Luke Steele told Rolling Stone the group envisioned the R&B jam as a "public service announcement" to their fans. "We got through all these trials and tribulations, but you just have to remember that we'll be there, keeping watch," he said. "Just go put on the record, and we'll sing to you."
