During a concert recorded for the BBC Radio programme The Friday Rock Show, front man Jack Russell said "House Of Broken Love" is a song about the very next address on lonely street. It appears though to have had a more direct - and for White, painful - inspiration. It was written after his first divorce. Lead guitarist Mark Kendall had also gone through a break up; the two men were sitting together when their manager walked in and asked, "What is this, the house of broken love?"
The band performed the song on the American Music Awards in January 1990, and it was released the same year backed by "Bitches And Other Women". In December 2009, a picture disc of the single turned up on Ebay for $39.99.
