This folk-influenced track features the honeyed harmonies of Rachel Zeffira, who is one half of the Cat's Eyes duo with The Horrors' Faris Badwan.

Better known for his political sloganeering, Bobby Gillespie sings here about letting go of anger and filling his heart with love. He admitted to NME: "It's a hard thing to let go, because I haven't let go of it! But I'm trying. Fifteen years ago I was like, 'Everybody's playing f--king roles! I don't trust anybody, I don't believe anybody.' And it was (My Bloody Frontman) Kevin Shields who said to me: 'Most people are OK; they're just trying to get through the day.' It was nice. Good wisdom from Mr. Shields."
