We'll Be Alright

Songfacts®:

  • This party anthem samples UK rock band Supergrass's "Alright," which was a #2 hit in their home country in 1995.
  • McCoy told Alternative Press: "'We'll Be Alright' is a fun song about not giving a f--k and not caring about what people think; just ignoring your insecurities. There's a song by Michael Jackson called 'Off The Wall' and in it he says, 'So tonight gotta leave that 9-to-5 upon the shelf and just enjoy yourself.' That line definitely inspired 'We'll Be Alright.' We can beat ourselves up about flaws we have, but at the end of the night, if we embrace them and realize we can't change those things, then we'll be alright. To me, this is a party anthem. I took a lot of time with the tracklisting of the album, making sure that it was cohesive and it was like a ride. Putting this after 'Akidagain' was really important."
  • Ironically, Supergrass split up in the week of the release of Lazarus. They played their final gig in Paris on June 11, 2010.
