"Bite Your Tongue" was released as a single on February 2, 1999[1] and is found on Duncan Sheik's second studio album, Humming. The song was called "a driving hard-pop number" by Rolling Stone's Neva Chonin,[2] "self-deprecating" by Allmusic's Roxanne Blanford[3] and Elysa Gardner from the Los Angeles Times said: "The single “Bite Your Tongue” rocks harder and more buoyantly than his previous hits.".[4] The song would also appear as a bonus track on the 2004 Daylight (Limited Tour Edition) CD[5] and on the 2006 double disk album Brighter/Later: A Duncan Sheik Anthology, released by Rhino Records[6] (Also released in 2007 as Greatest Hits – Brighter: A Duncan Sheik Collection, a single CD version.[7])
