  • Lyrics
  • Weller explained: "It's about someone leaving a dying planet. I love the image of the last verse: 'My mood gets lifted with the gravity's pull/Looks like I'm smiling but I'm dying too.' It's just about us mirroring our surroundings."
  • Weller has cited both British electronica musical group Broadcast and David Bowie as inspirations for this song.
  • The Andromeda Galaxy is a spiral galaxy 2.2 million light years away from Earth in the constellation of Andromeda, and the most distant object visible to the naked eye. It is the largest member of the Local Group of galaxies. It is similar in nature to our own Milky Way, but contains about twice as many stars. It is about 200,000 light years across.
