Notes

Track lengths are not listed - from computer program.

The song was recorded by Gorillaz and D12 in Damon Albarn's personal studio in West London. The track came about after 9/11 terrorist attacks on New York City. The track came about when Damon Albarn invited the band to his studio and played them an early demo of the track. Albarn had always wanted to experiment with Middle-Eastern music, and felt that this song would be perfect. D12 added additional production to the song, before laying down their verses. Terry Hall appears on the song as a vocal harmony with Albarn for the song's chorus. Albarn and Hall had previously spoken about collaborating together, however when Hall revealed that he had been taking singing lessons from a Middle-Eastern singer, it inspired Albarn to take the song a different direction.
