The first proper, physical release from the album was "Fire", which was released on the 1st of June.[3] Sergio Pizzorno has called the 52-minute album "the soundtrack to an imaginary movie."[4] The album includes a duet, on the track "West Ryder Silver Bullet", with the actress Rosario Dawson.[4] The album entered the UK Album Chart at #1, giving the band their second #1 album. The album was knocked off the number 1 spot – and somewhat overshadowed – by the death of Michael Jackson a short time after release[5]. "Underdog" has been used by Sony in a commercial for their BRAVIA Televisions.[6] Theme The West Riding Pauper Lunatic Asylum was a group of mental institutions built in West Yorkshire, England in the 1880s. Sergio Pizzorno further explained the choice of album title: "The album isn't about the place, I just first heard about it on a TV documentary, and the words just struck me. I love the way it looked and the feeling it evokes. Apparently, it was one of the first loony bins for the poor, before that it was mainly rich people who got treatment."[7] The album cover depicts the band "getting dressed up for a party at the asylum, looking in the mirror at the costumes". Inspiration for such cover originated from the artwork of Amon Düül II's album Made in Germany.[7] In an interview with T4, the band said that each track is meant to represent an inmate within the asylum.
