"This is a song to set the scene for a new record, both musically and lyrically. I hesitate to call the album 'political' per se, because its central emotions are doubt and fear. But if I can be so bold as to suggest the beginnings of a solution, it would be to try and recognise the things we have in common, which currently starts with the fact that no one knows what the hell is going on. I'm also interested in simplicity in songwriting – Bill Withers has been a big influence of late – so that comes in here, too. And I wanted to work with new sounds and textures, proper gospel choirs and alternative approaches to percussion. Hopefully this sets the scene for the album as a whole."
