Vashti Bunyan: "It's taken me seven years to make this album, and, very often, throughout those years, I’ve thought 'Just Another Diamond Day' looked forward, 'Lookaftering' looked back and I should leave them as bookends and just not do another one. But then these songs kept coming to me and I became more and more interested in the actual process of recording and editing. And then, all of a sudden, I had enough for an album... It was like emerging from shelter. I wanted to stand out on my own and see what would happen."
