"Caught by the River" is the third single from Doves' number 1 charting album The Last Broadcast. The single was released on 14 October 2002 in the UK on limited edition CD, CD and 10" vinyl, and charted at #29 on the UK Singles Chart. The music video was directed by David Mould.
An unknown quantity of the limited CD version (HVN126CDS, with fold-out poster insert) were mispressed and excluded the enhanced video track (even though the video track is listed on the CD sleeve) and contained only the 3 audio tracks.
The B-side "Willow's Song" is an 'edit' which cuts out the intro and runs 3:58. The full-length version (which includes a 'false start' and runs 4:20) can be found on the Japanese EP for "Pounding."
