Drummer Burrows left the band in 2009 while Ågren and Dalemo quit in 2011, but the line-up that recorded 2006's self-titled album and Slipway Fires from 2008 reconvened in June 2021 for a special streamed concert.

“My trust with Andy was at absolute zero so to get that back was really inspiring,” Borrell said in a statement. “That’s never happened before and it made me think a lot about my life, like if I can get my trust back with Andy, I could do it with anybody.”

The story of the band's reunion and reconciliation has been told in the documentary Razorlight: Fall To Pieces, which premiered at the Raindance Film Festival at the end of October.

“I had to go and chat with Johnny and make things good,” added Burrows. “If I didn’t, I’d have gone on thinking about it for the rest of my life, that we should’ve met up, we should’ve played together again, it was too special to leave behind.”

He went on: “While our relationship hasn’t always been plain sailing, when Johnny and I sit down to write music together, there’s a magic that happens. I’m so grateful to have him and the band back in my life."
