Recorded with the City of London Sinfonia, Jean sat behind a Bösendorfer Grand Piano and interpreted the lyrics as being a priest during a sermon, talking about sin and consequences for being sinful. In post-production, an extra layer of detached vocal effects were added to the otherwise fully live-recorded session, in order to create a more untouchable approach to the subject of the song.
