Paul Weller penned this song about the death of a much-loved icon with Erland Cooper from the folk rock band Erland & The Carnival. He told Uncut about their collaboration:
"Even though it's about Bowie, it's about coming to terms with loss - so I related to it on that level. But I liked singing someone else's lyrics. I'm critical of my own lyrics. Probably a lot of the time - it doesn't even matter - it's just me getting hung up - so it's liberating to sing someone else's words."
The song is one of three on True Meanings for which Erland Cooper penned the lyrics. He also contributed backing vocals to the track.
