The song was released as the fifth single from Communion
. Asked by Digital Spy
why the album was titled Communion, Alexander replied: "Well it's called Communion because when I looked at all the songs - the title came up at the end - and I looked at all the song titles, they all sounded very spiritual, like: 'Shine' and 'Take Shelter' and 'Worship.' I really like spiritual imagery, like the lyrics - I've always loved that."
"I wanted the words, I wanted the title to possibly reference that, and all the songs are about sex or relationships, so Communion just was perfect, because it was a communion of spirit, a communion of bodies, a communion of people."
