On the release, Synapson explain: “When we listened to Dominique’s album, we really liked the intensity of "Tall Lion Down", an Interlude. We immediately imagined what our musical production could bring to her calm and powerful voice.
“It was by accident that we came across an interview of Dominique which echoed the theme of the track, so it seemed natural to us to add it to the song.”
