  • This is a Rock-Soul tribute to Primal Scream's "Rocks," which was a Top Ten UK hit for the band in 1994. Gabrielle explained in the Daily Mail: "I've always loved songs with an indie feel. Primal Scream liked what we'd done and said they couldn't better it. That was class."
  • "Heartbreak" was subsequently included on Gabrielle's 2013 hit compilation Now and Always: 20 Years of Dreaming. Speaking with Digital Spy, Gabrielle said that she's always loved the song. "Everyone kept asking me where it came from as it wasn't a single," she said. "I love, love, love that song so much. I used a Primal Scream song as the backing track which I loved and I remember it going down well when I did a one-off show in Birmingham a few years ago. I've always done what feels right for me and I suppose putting this song on there represents that!"
