Lately It's You

Album: Moth Boys (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the closing track of Moth Boys. Spector frontman Fred MacPherson had kept the album title in his back pocket for years and he included it as a line on this song. MacPherson told HMV.com, "The idea behind is one I've had since I was a teenager. It's this idea of this gang of characters who are like moths, it's a weird species, they can be destroyed so easily and they're so inconsequential that there's a real sadness and beauty to their lives. It ties all the lyrics and the songs together really well."
