According to the Pet Shop Boys' February 3, 2024 interview with The Guardian, this is the only song on Nonetheless that specifically refers to the COVID-19 pandemic. It apparently concerns Neil's lockdown habit of dancing by himself on his kitchen floor. (Chris suggested that Kylie Minogue was one of Neil's favorite sources of music to dance to.) The article also notes that this song is a "rewrite" of a ballad from Naked, a planned "stage show" that the Boys are composing based on the Hans Christian Andersen tale "The Emperor's New Clothes." (You'll recall that their 2011 ballet The Most Incredible Thing is similarly based on an Andersen story.)
