Songfacts®:

  • Frank Turner references his wild-child days of drink and drugs in his former band, Million Dead, on this uplifting rock song. "It's easy to romanticize but it was not a happy period in my life," he admitted to The Evening Standard.
  • Turner told Rolling Stone that the track is a poignant reflection on how quickly time slips away. "'Losing Days' is a song about getting older, about the way time used to creep by like a glacier but now it flows more like a river," he explained. "It also mentions me getting my first tattoo when I was 16, very much underage. I got a UKHC [hardcore scene] logo on my shoulder."
