[B178] ‘Litany’

Released on: Empty Souls (Single #32), Epic Records, 10 January 2005
Peak UK Chart Position: #2

‘Litany’ possesses the title which was at one point intended to be used for Lifeblood itself: this could mean that the song was originally set to feature on the album, but it may not be likely given the actual construction of the track – it is significantly more similar to Lifeblood‘s B-sides than to its album tracks.

Built on a “watery” keyboard sound and a yearning vocal from Bradfield, ‘Litany’ is a likeable piece but yet again suffers from the repetitious nature and limited lyrics which by this point had become the hallmark of the Lifeblood-era B-sides.
