“Wire to Wire” Single by Razorlight from the album Slipway Fires

Released October 27, 2008
Genre Alternative rock

“Wire to Wire” is a song by Anglo-Swedish rock band Razorlight, written by singer Johnny Borrell, from their third album Slipway Fires. It was officially released as the album’s first single on October 27, 2008. It was released for downloads digitally, however, on September 26.

The song marked the band’s fourth UK Top 5 single and their fifth to chart in the UK Top 10. It peaked at #5 in the UK Singles Chart, and #3 in Germany and Austria. The song has also peaked #8 in Swiss, #13in Belgium (Flanders) #23 in Ireland and #71 in the Dutch singles charts. However, it underperformed in comparison to some of their previous singles and Slipway Fires is now their first album to fail to produce a top three single. It spent only 7 weeks in the UK Top 100, less than each of the first three singles from the preceding album Razorlight.
The song is a piano-led track, described as “slow-burning”.

The accompanying music video was shot by Oscar nominated feature film director Stephen Frears.

The track was used as part of Burberry’s introductory advertisement its the Fall/Winter 2009 collection.

What is love but the strangest of feelings?
A sin you swallow for the rest of your life?
You've been looking for someone to believe in
To love you until your eyes run dry
