Johnny played the track live during the closing shows of last December's North American tour, and became very popular.

"The first night we played it someone posted it on YouTube and it became really popular in the encore. Then the tour was over and I was invited to do something for Record Store Day and it was a really good fit. We managed to put our own twist on it, and I think make it modern." Marr said.

The video was directed by Chloe Little, who explains: "The concept was primarily inspired by the Alan Sillitoe short story ‘The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner’, but through a few nods to Patty Hearst and Gloria Steinhem it soon became known by it’s working title ‘The Loneliness of the Feminist Bank Robber’. I wanted to capture the confusion of belief and action through this sort of weird choreographed psychedelia, where our character desperately wants to follow through with what she thinks she believes in, but is in some constant internal battle between how she looks, how she feels and what she really wants."
