One story making part of the marvellous pop opera 'BMX Bandits in Space' was the narration of an almost perfect night: a person feels his wounds heal after meeting at girl at a Belle & Sebastian gig, enjoying the Glasgow snow and feeling warmth to get through it.

The title track’s irresistible soul-pop gives way to three previously unreleased tracks - 'Children Song' was co-written with Japanese singer Miette-One, with echoes of Burt Bacharach and embracing baroque arrangements of HARPERS BIZARRE and THE LEFT BANKE.

'Standing Still' was recorded in Tokyo with Yeongene and the collaboration of Sayuri & Ueno (TENNISCOATS).

'Students Of Life' was almost left out, but recorded in the end thanks to the insistence of Francis Macdonald (TEENAGE FANCLUB) - this is a live version of the song recorded at the group’s 25th anniversary.
