Martin Gore told Billboard:
"I wrote ['Little Soul' and 'Peace'] back to back, and the flow of the album started to make more sense. I really felt they had a spirituality to them. That somehow set a cornerstone for the rest of the writing."
In one of the Sounds Of The Universe documentaries, a whiteboard can be seen with a list of the working titles of the songs: this song was originally called 'Footprint'. Dave Gahan confirms that in this interview.
