Songfacts®:

  • This is the last track on the album and at the ends it loops back to join in with the introduction to "Light Nights," the opening track. Weller explained to Uncut magazine July 2008: "I really wanted to make the album flow, to have all the tracks flowing into each other. Also in these days where people are into downloading one track or two tracks, I just liked the idea that people would want to hear the whole record as a complete piece."
  • Paul Weller: "There are a lot of mentions of the seasons in my songs, and this is another one. We recorded it with the studio door open. You get some beautiful sunsets down at the Barn. When we finished the final track, there was a huge electrical storm, and we took the microphones outside to capture the sound of the rain falling. It symbolizes the year coming full circle."
