Credits inside the album
- The origins of the album come from
the 2004's Nigeria sessions with Tony Allen, Simon Tong and local
musicians. Back in England, this Afrocentric
material "felt too big" for Damon's original intentions and was simplified into more
traditional songs with Paul Simonon and Danger Mouse.
- The album was the first EMI album
released as a DRM-free download.
- "Behind The Sun" was first
performed by Damon at
Keeping It Peel concert in 2004. The
song wasn't finished back then.
- "Three Changes" is based on three
different songs mixed together by Danger Mouse.
- "Green Fields" has been described
by Damon as "a song that came back to me". As the song's lyrics say,
he first demoed it for Marianne Faithfull "years ago, late at
night, somewhere on the Goldhawk Road".
