Jagger told Zane Lowe that the song wasn’t written thinking about Covid-19:
“It wasn’t written for now, but it was just one of those odd things. It was written about being in a place which was full of life but is now bereft of life, so to speak.”

So, I slightly rewrote it. I didn’t have to rewrite very much, to be honest. It’s very much how I originally did it.”
