In a press release, Marling said May I Be The Light "was the weirdest one to pull together from the piece of music that Mike had...It’s in 5/4 and took a bit of getting my head around. The 'Sign of The Times' melody was one of those things that had been rolling around my brain for years and I finally found the right place for it."
