The song was inspired by the 1989 novel In the Eyes of Mr. Fury by Philip Ridley.[2] The single was released prior to the duo's first ever European tour. The cover and artwork were created by Anton Corbijn and Area. The photo sessions took place in Andalucia, Spain in May 1989.

The song was also popular on US alternative radio, reaching number 12 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart in March 1990.[3]
