EMI took advantage of the publicity around RCA's "Southpaw Grammar" album and associated singles and concerts to release this single featuring three previously unreleased tracks recorded in 1994. "Sunny" almost made it onto the "Boxers" single, "Black Eyed Susan" was planned at some point to be included on the "The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get" single and "A Swallow On My Neck" was originally recorded for the "Hold On To Your Friends" single.
