Hang Your Head

Hang Your Head

Hang Your Head is the fourth and final single from Deacon Blue's album Whatever You Say, Say Nothing. The single version of the song is very similar to the album version, except that it has a slightly longer introduction and also has a cold start in place of the album version's fade-in. This was the first Deacon Blue single release to exclude all vinyl formats.

The first B-side is the upbeat rock song, "Freedom Train", which is an original composition by the band, but is only presented in a live version. The other two B-sides are the soaring "Here on the Wind" and Ricky and Lorraine's gentle duet, "Indigo Sky", both of which contain imagery related to the biblical account of Adam and Eve. "Indigo Sky" would later be released on The Very Best of Deacon Blue.

As with the previous release, "Only Tender Love", a special edition CD single entitled "The Riches Collection Part 2" was issued. In addition to "Hang Your Head", it again contained three tracks from the Riches bonus album.
