Spiteri wrote and recorded this album after splitting with her boyfriend Ashley Heath, the father of the singer's daughter Misty Kyd. A number of the tracks, including this one, reflect on their breakup. She told the Daily Record May 10, 2008: "The lyrics are pretty hardcore. 'Something inside just died - it was YOU.' That's quite tough. When I told (producer) Bernard (Butler) it was going to be the first track, he said, 'You're brave'. But I don't think it is because it says a lot about what the album is about. I'm proud of the fact it sounds very 'now' but it still sounds different because it's coming from an older woman's perspective."
"Crank That (Soulja Boy)" was the most successful digital track of 2007 in the US with 2,909,000 downloads. On January 6, 2008 it became the first song ever to sell 3 million digital copies in the States.
"Cleveland Rocks" was written by an Englishman. Ian Hunter wrote the song after touring America in the late '70s and finding that Cleveland was by far the most receptive city to his brand of Glam Rock.
