Still Burning is 1997's follow-up to Bring 'em All In (1995), and the last of Mike Scott's solo albums before re-forming The Waterboys in 2000. Photography was provided by Andrew Catlin and Mary Scanlon. Although well-received critically, sales of the album were poor and Scott was subsequently dropped from Chrysalis Records. This led directly to Scott's decision to revive the Waterboys' name in order to achieve wider marketplace exposure. Scott describes the making of and commercial failure of the album in detail in his 2012 autobiography, Adventures Of A Waterboy.

The songs Love Anyway and Rare, Precious and Gone were released as singles. The video for the latter (available to view on YouTube) is notable for having been filmed in a booth at an airport that cost £5.00 to operate while Scott and his band were waiting to board a flight, potentially making it one of the lowest costing filmed music videos ever produced.
