|A Million Degrees tracklist|
War is the first song on the album A Million Degrees by Emigrate.
- Richard planned to have Serj Tankian of System of a Down sing on the song. "He was excited at the idea, then a day later he called me and said that he thought the song was perfect for my voice, he did not really know what to add, so I left my vocals on there. I took that as a huge compliment."
- The song was written by Richard in New York, when the US started to invade Iraq.
- The solo was played by Steve Binetti, who also played the solo on Die Pest by Feeling B.
- The song has existed since the recordings of Silent So Long. Translation for the interview picture (thank you to Jeremie Vasseur):
Which song ignited, or actually reignited this process?
Wow! That, that's a difficult one...
Arnaud Giroux: I would say it's "War", a title which dates back to our New Yorker time and which doesn't appear at all on Silent So Long. We will find it on the next album, it makes no doubt. It's a song which I instantaneously loved. Everything pleases me, the lyrics, the music... Everything!
- In a track-by-track interview with Kerrang!, Richard said the following about the song:
Normally I don’t really talk about my lyrics. I don’t like telling people what to think about certain songs, but with this one I have a lot to say. It goes back to when I was still living in New York and the idea came to me when America was invading Iraq. I watched a lot of TV over there and realised just how commercialised the news sources were when it came to things like war and invasion. I wanted to capture how I felt about that in music. This song felt like a real moment for me. When people ask me about what are the differences when writing for either of my bands… well, I think War is a strong example of something that could have been a good Rammstein song, actually.
