He said of the song In a press statement, “one of the songs that just fell into my hands and mind as I was playing. The tune evoked something natural so I just followed it and it felt like I had to sing something personal, something we might all feel about someone sometime.”
The album is his first LP in four years and comprises of 12-track. It is inspired by both Brexit and the election of Donald Trump.
Johnny Marr told Rolling Stone of the album;
"I wouldn't call it a concept record. But it's got a unifying theme going through it about the Earth welcoming a different intelligence from the cosmos to save us from our own plight. The title Call the Comet is sort of a conscious plea for a new way."
