It was part of the three-track audition tape Bowie’s new manager Kenneth Pitt used to persuade the label to sign him. The track itself shows Bowie’s infatuation at the time with Anthony Newley. Despite some good notices in the music press, the single was a flop, once more failing to break into the UK charts.
The track was later re-recorded for Bowie’s debut album. The B-side, “The London Boys”, was belatedly issued as a single in 1975.
The US release had "There is a Happy Land" as the B-side.
