- An early rough mix was first premièred at the Mansun Convention 2014 and was warmly received by the crowd
Feeling My Heart Run Slow was initially recorded at Hugh Padgham's now defunct Sofa Sound studios in London in early 2015. Studio personnel for the three day stint were Paul Draper (guitar and vocals), Ben Stack (bass), Jon Barnett (drums), Ben Sink (assistant engineer), Scott Knapper (engineer) and Suzi Meredith (filming and photographing the session for future releases).
The main reason for the session was to get the live drum track down so Paul could then continue to work on the track in his production room at Sofa Sound, The Kitchen. Although all other instruments were re-recorded at a later date, certain elements such as the twangy guitar effects that Paul played while messing around during the session remained in the final version of the song.
Feeling My Heart Run Slow was chosen by Paul to be played exclusively at the 2014 Mansun convention that was held in Chester on 23rd August. The track has since undergone a large transformation compared to the original version that was heard at the convention.
In January 2016 Paul Draper stated that a new single would be forthcoming, in the months that followed it was announced that Too Pure Singles Club were going to exclusively release Paul's single on their label to celebrate 100 releases of vinyl from the club. On the 26th April 2016 the single was announced on the Steve Lamacq show as being Feeling My Heart Run Slow, and that Paul described the track as "a thundering juggernaut of a revenge rock n roll song" as is described on Paul's store page promoting the forthcoming EP - EP One, due for release on June 10th 2016.
