  • Weller explained this psychedelic number: "I've never really done anything like it before. It's based on a poem I wrote about a year ago. Lyrically, it's about the sea as a metaphor for life. Sometimes, however, you just have to plunge in and get on with it."
  • On this track Paul re-united with bass guitarist Bruce Foxton for the first time since The Jam split in 1982. Weller told Mojo magazine February 2010: "We'd both lost loved ones and without getting too spiritual that was the spur of it. I spoke to him this time last year when his wife Pat was ill and that broke the ice, then I invited him down to Black Barn (studio). There was no big plan, it was easy, a laugh, and nice to see him and work together again. We just slipped back into it."
  • My Bloody Valentine's guitarist Kevin Shields also plays on this track.
