"I’ve never really written a song like this before. I had this beautiful tune for ages and didn’t know what to do with it. It’s got a Phil Spector, Burt Bacharach kind of feel. It’s about a self-destructive love affair, one which is great for a bit but you both know it can’t last or someone is going to die. And Tom’s vocals are genius."
Jacknife Lee was initially going to produce the album, but the band felt like he tried to change their music too much. The only song left over from those sessions is Reason is Treason, which is featured as a hidden track on most editions of the album and is also used in the song’s official video.
