I feel like "Lost a Friend" was the turning point for the album in general. Before we started working on it, I felt like the song was a quiet, folky sort of "album track", and that "Whatever Works" was the natural second single. But what began to happen as myself and Shayne (Byrne: producer/collaborator) started recording and arranging the track was we realised that "Lost a Friend" was a strong potential single, as we both accentuated the shift between verse and chorus, and worked to get the best out of the song that we possibly could. What myself and Shayne were able to do with the recording is one of my proudest achievements
