"Revolving Doors" was recorded in Boston, Massachusetts on 5 October 2010, during the North American leg of the band's Escape to Plastic Beach World Tour. During an interview on 5th Pirate Radio, fictional band member 2D said of the song: "I wrote the song after I saw a set of revolving doors in a hotel. It reminded me of how far from home I was and how much I was out of place."
"Revolving Doors" was first performed live at the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion in Boston, Massachusetts during the Humanz Tour on 12 July 2017, more than 7 years after its release. The performance marked the first time material from The Fall was played live.
NME gave the single a positive review, stating: "Revolving Doors is very unlike anything Gorillaz have ever done before. As Damon's vocals introduce a fragile human touch to proceedings, Gorillaz' leader spins this lament over gentle guitars and hypnotic chants."
