Watch below…

Alex Neilsen says of the track: “This is one of the more accessible songs that I’ve written. Lyrically it’s very much in debt to Oscar Wilde’s DeProfundis. I heard a broadcast of it on BBC Radio 3 a couple of years ago read by the actor Stephen Rea. It was one of those “I had to pull over the car” moments that people talk about. Just incredibly moving as a study in suffering and transcendence and culpability. The fact that the recipient of the letter, Lord Alfred Douglas, didn’t even read it is heartbreaking. I can still remember some of the phrases from it “Behind every new born child or new born star there is pain”. It’s making me quite tearful to think about it. Again, I wanted the end section to sound like a gigantic structure rusting in the middle of the sea. So, it turned out to be accessible against the intentions of its creator”
