Guitarist Anthony Armstrong: "There are times regardless of how hard we fight it that we just feel like we've drifted so far away from what we used to be... it's frustrating because sometimes we don't really remember where it all went wrong and how we get back to that place and go a different direction. This subject matter felt like it needed to be wrapped in a ballad. The slower tempo and feeling felt right, but we juiced it up with heavier guitars than a typical striped down ballad. The bridge is where it seems to turn around and we discover a way to get back to where we want to be." (Source Artist Direct)
"Bittersweet Symphony" by The Verve samples an obscure orchestral arrangement of the 1965 Rolling Stones song "The Last Time." The Verve had to sign away most of the royalties before they could release the song.
