Nothing But Love

Album: Girl At The End Of The World (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • As soon as James had written this song, they knew it was one of their better ones. Frontman Tim Booth told NME: "We improvise songs, we can't write hits, we have not a clue how to do that and we aren't interested in that, but every so often a big song just turns up. It's like you're fishing for trout and you suddenly catch a massive great pike by complete error. We knew we'd caught something quite big with 'Nothing But Love.'"
  • Girl At The End Of The World was recorded at RAK Studios in St. John's Wood, London and produced by Max Dingel (The Killers, Muse). He recalled the laying down of this song: "Because everybody played together in one room there was a lot of bleed and spill between all of the instruments. On the multitrack you can hear drums coming down the microphones of guitar amps, and bass guitar on the drum channels. You can even hear Tim's screaming being picked up by some of the microphones of the drum kit. Somehow it all worked and the vibe of the recording was great."
