Inspired by the eclectic sounds of LCD Soundsystem, Tilzer and Nacchio embarked on a mission to infuse their cover with the essence of these influences, transcending conventional genre boundaries. Recorded in Tilzer’s studio, the single is a testament to their collective musical prowess, with both artists contributing not only vocals but also instrumental layers. The mastering touch of Serge Espitia from Tiny Thunder Audio completes the sonic tapestry.

Nacchio and Tilzer infuse it with a unique perspective, capturing the emotional turmoil of attempting to move forward when nothing quite compares to a past love.

A noteworthy element in the song’s narrative is its genesis as a lighthearted project with no specific release date. However, when news of Sinead O’Connor’s passing reached them, the duo felt a profound connection to the song’s history. In a poignant tribute to O’Connor, they decided to finalize and release the cover, infusing it with an added layer of meaning and significance.
