Of its conception, Cale has said,
“I was really into some swirling strings and rhythms for this, but I didn't want it to end up being too complete. I started this with a keyboard riff that seemed impossible to play and then from there I began layering with the idea of really breaking up the comfort level with things that poke out of the track to never quite let you settle in.’

The single is backed with the sparse and tender "Living With You (Organic Mix)" which is a contender for an A side of its own. Both tracks are available from iTunes right now.
