Speaking about "Red Shoulder" in a statement, Williams said: "'Red Shoulder’ is a song about destabilisation and dissociation. Something soft and tender becomes warped and sinister, turning into sensory overload and confusion. How can something so lovely turn painful and claustrophobic? The song ends with a heavy and visceral guitar solo, attempting to reground what went awry."
