Glass

  • Kasabian songwriter and guitarist Serge Pizzorno told NME about this ambient shuffle: "This comes from the idea that if the people joined as a collective we could do so much damage. It's like when they blocked the petrol stations and we didn't have petrol for three days. There is power in that."
  • Pizzorno told the BBC about the inspiration for the song: "I went in a train carriage and I looked from one end to the other, and everyone was on their phone or looking at glass screens," he said. "I understand it. I've done it myself. But people used to look out the window and imagine. Boredom is such an important energy. That's when you think of new things, that's when you start creating. When did it happen that we stopped caring about what's going on around us? We're happy to get lost inside an infinite distraction machine."
  • Street poet Suli Breaks closes the track with a semi-rap about achieving our dreams if we all work together. It's an example of the Hip-Hop element that shows up in many Kasabian songs. Serge Pizzorno told Digital Spy: "Production-wise it's always been way more in that camp than rock music. I've never been much inspired by indie rock at all."
