Songfacts®:

  • Ward collaborated on this retro, reverb-heavy Pop tune with longtime PJ Harvey producer John Parish. He told the story of the song to UK newspaper The Sun: "I don't write on piano very often but I wrote the melody first and then the rest just fell out of my brain - like groceries falling through a paper bag. It took one hour and then I recorded it with John Parish in Bristol (England) and he added all the necessary noise that is his expertise."
