  • Tim Burgess has said he believes this to be the best record he's ever written.
  • In an interview with, Burgess said: "Mark (Collins, guitarist) came over to LA to visit me, and brought the track over with him. It was obviously an instrumental. But it was pretty much fully formed. So I wrote the words for it, and I thought, this does sound very Charlatans, but it was never something we consciously did to keep anyone happy, I just thought this is good!" >>
