Wild Beasts announced on September 25, 2017 that they would be splitting up after 15 years together. To mark their end, the band dropped this previously unreleased song. Recorded during the band's sessions for Boy King, it was released as part of an EP with the same title along with "Maze" and "Last Night All My Dreams Came True."
Frontman Hayden Thorpe told NME about the track:
"It was never designed to be our parting song but in many ways it's fitting because it's the most highly evolved song of all of ours. It's a song that started in fragments around the first album and it's taken the entire journey of our career to come to the fore. There's something beautiful and poignant about goodbyes and that song burns as brightly as when we first emerged."
