Speaking on the new track, Natalie shared: “I wrote this song about the creeping feeling you get when you know something is over. A “Nue” is a legendary Japanese spirit of ill omen; a shapeshifting phantom which sometimes appears as a black cloud. This was a perfect theme to bring to the lyrics because it represents the creeping dread you feel when you slowly realise the truth and what it represents. I wanted to weave this theme into the whole single concept including the video design which has a yin / yang feel to it, where you are watching something pure being spoiled.”
