About this album

Longing Was a Safe Place to Hide is the second full-length album released by Melbourne band Love Outside Andromeda. Overall, it is significantly mellower than their self-titled debut, distancing itself from some of the more frantic songs. Lead single Bound By Hurt Dissolved received radio play in late 2005, and later singles Measuring Tape and Sparrow began to receive play in July-August 2006, closer to the September 2006 release date of the album.

The title Longing Was a Safe Place to Hide is a lyric from the fourth track on the LP, A Room Full of People.

All tracks were written by Sianna Lee, except 6 (Sianna Lee/Joseph Hammond) and 10 (Jamie Slocombe/Sianna Lee/Joseph Hammond). Strings arranged by Alastair Watts; horns arranged by Joe Hammond and Jamie Slocombe.
