Album: More Light (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This song allies a euphoric sound to sad, resigned lyrics. "That song has a good duality, which I love in music frontman Bobby Gillespie told The Sun. "Country and soul are two of my favourite genres. They can be ecstatic and painful at the same time. Marvin Gaye was the king of that with 'I Heard It Through The Grapevine' and even 'Sexual Healing.'"
