Remember Your Name

Album: The Author (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • This is a song about Karima Francis' mother. She told the Observer Music Monthly January 2009: "I wrote it when she was drinking. I find it physically draining to sing, because it takes me back to that time. I really find it hard, and it scares me to know that I'm going to have to keep singing it."
