The album's title is from the philosophical novel Sophie's World by Jostein Gaarder, the context being: The album itself was recorded shortly after the break-up of Spiritualized's Jason Pierce and Kate Radley, the band's keyboard player. Radley had secretly married Richard Ashcroft of The Verve in 1995. Pierce, however, maintains that much of the album, including “Broken Heart” and “Cool Waves”, had been written before the breakup. “If you write a song like [Broken Heart], you have to make it feel like what it's like to have a broken heart,” he said. “That's what making albums is all about. Otherwise it's just field recordings.” Original pressings had a version of the title track that incorporated the lyrics and melody of Elvis Presley's “Can't Help Falling in Love.” The Presley estate initially objected to this, and a remixed version appeared on the commercial release, with new lyrics. However, Spiritualized continue to use both sets of lyrics in live performances. By 2009, they were allowed to use the version with the Presley lyrics on the reissued edition of the album, with the proviso that the song be titled “Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space (I Can't Help Falling in Love).” Album closer “Cop Shoot Cop...” references lyrics from John Prine's “Sam Stone”, incorporating variations on a key line from that song's chorus.
