Songfacts®:

  • The Harvest For The World album kicks off with this prelude, concocted by keyboardist Chris Jasper in the studio. He told Uncut; "After we recorded 'Harvest...', I remember saying, 'This is a great message here - it would be nice if there was a setup, So 'Harvest For The World (Prelude)' was done on the spot in the studio. I just took some motifs from 'Let Me Down Easy' and 'Harvest For The World' and did it in half an hour."
