With its pretty melody and lyrics that lay bare a couple’s argument, ‘How To Be Dead’ is one of the band’s most delicate-sounding songs to date. As well as the CLA mix of the title track, this version includes ‘You Are My Joy’ recorded live At Somerset House and the Grand National Remix of ‘Chocolate’.
