Million Eyes

Album: Distance Inbetween (2016)
  • songfacts ®
  • This song refers to The Coral's rediscovered gang mentality after their five-year hiatus. Frontman James Skelly told Drowned in Sound: "It's about being in a gang and feeling like you're out on your own and no one can touch you. When you're a gang you have your own language."
  • The song is a reboot of a previously unreleased track. James Skelly explained: "We recorded a version of this with John Leckie after Butterfly House that was more acoustic. For this version though, we wanted it to sound like Hawkwind jamming with The Byrds. The jam at the end was spontaneous in the studio and then we edited it in on the end."
