About the song Edit
The song was written during demo sessions for the Astronaut album, which began in the south of France in June 2001. The band wrote more than 30 songs during the demo sessions that continued into 2002 and 2003.
During this period a teaser CD with short demo versions of a few of the unfinished songs (used to demonstrate the new work to potential labels and producers) was leaked to the Internet and quickly copied throughout the band's fan base. The songs on the CD were "Virus", "(Reach Up for The) Sunrise", "TV vs Radio", "Taste the Summer", "Salt in the Rainbow" and "Pretty Ones".
The band were very unhappy about the leak. With the exception of "(Reach Up for The) Sunrise" which became their first single and "Taste the Summer", the leaked songs were not included in the final version of Astronaut. "Virus" later appeared as a bonus track on a Japanese edition of Astronaut.
