This is one of two new songs that The Kooks recorded for their career-spanning compilation album Best Of… So Far. "[It] sounds very much like old school Kooks," frontman Luke Pritchard told NME. "It's written in that vein – it's an upbeat down rock 'n' roll tune, and it's got a guitar solo [laughs]! It's a fun tune."
Pritchard explained the song's meaning. "Lyrically, it's all me looking in the mirror," he said. "The songwriting put me back in that time, so I was trying to write a song that I would have written then. It was quite a creative process for me. I was like, 'What would I have written then, and what kind of style should it be?' The lyrics are all self-reflective and about me at that time. I thought it would be good to go with all the other songs, so it's a nice reflective moment."
