Kurz vorm Valentinstag veröffentlichen Neck Deep einen Version von „What Took You So Long?“. Das ist nach eigener Aussage ein Liebeslied und stammt vom aktuellen Album „All Distortions Are Intentional“, das im vergangenen Jahr erschienen war. Sänger Ben Barlow findet folgende Worte zu dieser Interpretation des Songs:
’What Took You So Long?’ acoustic was something we whittled together during a little downtime. It was a song that originally came together in the studio, and whilst recording we noticed it’s ‘balladic’ (if that’s even a word, I haven’t been autocorrected!) qualities. We flicked through the stems and re-recorded guitars acoustically and really just focused on getting the song to sound as beautiful as possible. We added a ton of different layers to the composition and even a little mandolin-like in ‘Little Dove’.
It’s a straight-up love song, and love is a complex spectrum, so we felt having a softer version alongside the original would nicely depict the different forms that love can take. Energetic and exciting, to delicate and meaningful all in the same moment. We hoped that it could provide a little soundtrack to those beautiful moments with this rendition. Enjoy!”
