In this episode, it's the turn of "Hard To Build. Easy To Break.", another new song from the band's upcoming album, "Such Ferocious Beauty", to come under the spotlight.
Like "What I Lost", the song is a co-write by Michael Timmins and Alan Anton and they are both here to talk us through it, along with some exclusive clips from the songwriting demo to boot.
Musically built on a loping groove that has roots that you might not immediately associate the Junkies with, the lyric looks at both the personal and the political and our growing addiction to tearing things down just for the sake of it.
