Keane bought in Stuart Price, who helmed Madonna's Confessions On a Dancefloor
, as co-producer to help with some songs they were struggling to complete. Pianist and chief- songwriter Tim Rice-Oxley explained to Bullz-Eye.com
how the band particularly valued the producer's contribution on this track: "I felt we had this track, 'Again and Again,' that was actually the oldest track on the record and we were kind of struggling to make it as exciting as the new ones, and with Stuart we just went completely off on a different tangent with it and out came this big, sort of electro-synth monster. I loved working with him; he's a fantastic guy."
