The title track of the single was produced by Hugh Jones , who had produced the band's second album, 's Heaven Up Here. The single introduced a new sound for the band with an expanded arrangement including congas , marimbas , violins and cellos. Due to a high demand for tickets a matinee performance was added. With representatives from the band's record company and lead singer Ian McCulloch's mother in the audience, the performance was nervous and uncertain; although the evening performance, without the record company representatives and McCulloch's mother, was much improved.
After catching a cold, McCulloch completed the recording of the vocals for the song at Amazon Studio in Liverpool , where de Freitas also completed the drumming. Henri Loustau, the engineer at des Dames, assisted on the string passages and Adam Peters provided the string arrangements and played cello and piano.
It's all pretty dark. The whole mood is very windswept: European pirates, a bit Ben Gunn ; dark and stormy, battering rain; all of that. However, the design was altered slightly by graphic designer Rachel Gutek of the design company guppyart. This release contains an expanded booklet written by music journalist Max Bell giving the background to the album. The booklet contains a number of photographs which are credited to Sergeant and Pattinson.
The album was marketed as "the greatest album ever made" and McCulloch later said it was because they believed it was. I was on the phone to [ Rob Dickins , managing director of Warner Bros. Eight bonus tracks were added to the album: A collector's edition was released in October which, while still including "Angels and Devils", replaced the bonus tracks of the 25th anniversary edition with the extended inch single versions of "Silver" and "The Killing Moon".
