One of my favourite songs on the album is the midway point of 'Deep Deep Feeling', which is over eight minutes long. If people are expecting your lockdown album to feel like lockdown, that's the track that feels the most claustrophobic to me, despite its being essentially about love.

That was one of the songs that I'd actually started last year. If I'm lucky, I'll have a bit of time when I'll go into the studio and just make something up, and so I try to just do something that I haven't done before. This was one of those that I didn't finish. To me, what it was about was, sometimes – I don't how it happens of even what it is – when you're feeling Real Love towards someone, sometimes it can manifest in a tingling over your whole body, and it's a pretty funny feeling, and you almost don't like it – 'What the hell is this?!' – like you're about to be beamed up into a spaceship or something. On this song I was fascinated with the idea of that – that deep, deep feeling when you love someone so much it almost hurts. That was the start of that, but after I made it I thought, well, this isn't for anything. It's certainly not a three-minute single. What became nice about working in the studio was that in the evening Mary would be cooking, because she loves to cook, and we'd be sitting around before dinner, and she'd say, “Well, what did you do today then?” and I'd go, “Oh, ok, I'll play it for you.” And I always wanted it to keep going. I just wanted it to go on forever. It's a bit indulgent, and I was a little bit worried about that – I thought I really needed to cut it down, but just before I did that I just listened to it, and I thought, “Y'know what, I love this, I'm not going to touch it.”
