The focus on the Covid-era records was intentional as Flowers explained to Consequence that "they could get a light shined on them that maybe wasn't." Indeed, this compilation showcases five tracks from Imploding the Mirage and Pressure Machine.

Of note is the inclusion of "Mr. Brightside," which has been recently declared as the most streamed track in the UK on Spotify in the past 15 years.
