It was his sixth single overall, and his third single from A Brighter Beat, released in the UK on 8 July 2007 on Full Time Hobby.
Middleton has commented on the song, saying:
|“||"Fight Like The Night" comes from the usual theme of weekday mundanity, depression and discontent, combined with my usual lack of understanding about anything. I've been reading a lot of shite books over the past few years trying to find answers to the big questions. What I've come up with is; do what the fuck you like as long as you can live with yourself. Don't worry about anything because we've no idea about what's actually happening and why we're here. The second to last line of the song is barely audible, but it's important: "Skip into the flames." That sums it up for me - don't be scared.||”|
