  • The single version of this song was remixed by Steve Fitzmaurice and is not the same as the album release.
  • Ex Sex Pistols Steve Jones and Paul Cook and a 32-piece orchestra provide backing on this song.
  • In the video for this song, Ian Brown pays tribute to his own childhood hero Bruce Lee.
  • The former Stone Roses vocalist Brown told Uncut magazine that The World Is Yours was the most ambitious and political album he'd made so far: "I tried to make something that was beautiful and at the same time says the thoughts that are on everybody's mind: poverty, the Iraq war, street kids, the power of the churches, all the things that were wrong with the world. But I tried to make it beautiful at the same time."
