  • Although the track was never released as a single, Irish radio RTÉ 2fm played the song on a frequent basis in early 2005, mainly on Dan Hegarty’s show.
  • I went with a different sound on Brighter Sky because I needed to do something unlike anything I had ever done before. I knew at the time I wanted to take a different direction in the writing, I had been writing this way for many years, so it was more for myself then anything else. I was doing the best I could to get away from the sound that people were used to hearing from me, this is also the reason the track was put first on the album.” – Noel Hogan, 20 December 2005
