  • Jamie T told NME that this breakup song was written after listening to "a lot of the Rolling Stones and a bit of Bob Dylan and some Blur."

    "I was listening to things that were quite misogynistic, in a weird way," he added. "Because these are beautiful love songs, but underneath it they're f---ing scathing like 'Under My Thumb' and 'Don't Think Twice, It's All Right,' where he's like, 'You just kinda wasted my precious time.' It's so flippant, it's f---ing rude."

    There's some great lines in 'No Distance Left To Run,'" Jamie T continued. "'I hope you're with someone who makes you feel safe in your sleeping tonight... but when your coming down, think of me here.' It's a horrible thing to say – 'at your most vulnerable moment. think of me.' The beauty of saying goodbye to someone, but also being like 'f--k you' really hit me. So I was trying to write a song with that kind of temperament to it."
