This is a personalised take on Charles Wright's 1970 street-funk anthem "Express Yourself." Labrinth explained to The Sun: "My mum used to play the original – The Charles Wright version, not NWA – I just thought it would be a nice nod back to my mum and those times by putting my version on the album."
Labrinth is signed to Simon Cowell's record label Syco, and is the music mogul's first non-talent show signing for several years. The English musician alludes to his reality show labelmates with this song's lyric: "I don't make the papers, I'm far from JLS/ Ain't got the X Factor, I'm not what they expect."
Kid Rock's "All Summer Long" is a mashup of "Werewolves Of London" and "Sweet Home Alabama." The album it came from was released in October, 2007, but they held off until summer, 2008 for a more seasonable release.
"Cigarettes And Chocolate Milk" describes a time in Rufus Wainwright's life when he found himself hungover and pounding chocolate milk to feel better. It didn't work, so he smoked a cigarette, which is when he realized his addictive personality could be a problem.
