About the song
Album's producer Paul Godfrey posted his opinion about song on Morcheeba's official website saying:
|“||It’s about succeeding in every way and still feeling like there is something missing. When Manda put her voice to it, it sounded really bittersweet.||”|
While reviewing the album, many critics praised the song for its laidback and smooth tempo.
The animated music video was directed by Joel Trussell, an American artist who also made the video for "Enjoy the Ride".
The single was released as an EP containing two remixes and "Priceless" as a B-side that isn't included on the album. "Priceless" features performance by Bootie Brown of Pharcyde, the distinctive voice of Merry Clayton on backing vocals and lead vocals of Judie Tzuke.
