Background[edit]

It is Chaplin's first solo album since Keane announced their hiatus in 2013, and Chaplin has called the process of recording a solo album a "daunting prospect for someone who knows nothing else".[3]
After the band members began new projects, Chaplin began using drugs due to anxiety over the album and "thought [he] was going to die" in early 2015: "When I finally liberated myself from years of spiraling addiction, a place of inspiration and creativity became available to me. I set about writing an album that documents my transition from the darkest recesses of human experience to a place of resolution, fulfillment and happiness. At long last I am comfortable in my own skin and have achieved that elusive dream of writing a set of songs I can truly call my own."[3][4]

Music videos[edit]

The first video from the album was for "Hardened Heart", which became available to view on 12 August 2016. The album's first single "Quicksand" was released accompanied by a music video on 26 August.
