The snippet featured a dubstep-style breakdown.[4] On July 6, the group confirmed that they had split from their long-time record company Island Records, and had since signed a three-album deal with Sony BMG.[5] On July 10, the band premiered the song for the first time in the UK, performing it live at the T4 On The Beach Festival in Weston Super-Mare.[6] A second teaser appeared online on July 22.[7] On August 1, the song recieved it's first radio play on BBC Radio 1, and was such leaked online in it's radio edit form. The radio edit does not include the dubstep breakdown as featured in the Nokia snippet posted on YouTube.[8] On August 15, the band announced that the single would be released via Digital Download on September 25, 2011, and as a physical single the following day.[9]
