"Last year, in a fit of rage after watching the news, I wrote a song called Guantanamo. I didn't know at the time if it would be right for the album, but I recorded it in the album sessions nonetheless. In the event, it turned out extremely well, but after much soul-searching I decided it simply didn't sit alongside the other songs on the album comfortably. However, the subject is so immediate and my rage has not diminished. So instead of plonking it on a b-side we thought we'd give it to you right now. See what you think.

Cheers, Neil"
