The song's lyrics question the singer's purpose in life.
The song's first recording session was on 3 October 1967 along with "With the Sun in My Eyes" and "Words". The song's last recording session was on 28 October 1967. "World" was originally planned as having no orchestra, so all four tracks were filled with the band, including some mellotron or organ played by Robin. When it was decided to add an orchestra, the four tracks containing the band were mixed to one track and the orchestra was added to the other track. The stereo mix suffered since the second tape had to play as mono until the end when the orchestra comes in on one side. Barry adds: "'World' is one of those things we came up with in the studio, Everyone just having fun and saying, 'Let's just do something!' you know". Vince Melouney recalls: "I had this idea to play the melody right up in the top register of the guitar behind the chorus".
Stations may also choose to place their own programming, such as local government hearings and events, on their subchannel at local discretion. PBS coverage of Presidential speeches and addresses are also offered regularly as part of the World schedule.
Fires is the ninth studio album by Irish singer Ronan Keating. The album was released on 3 September 2012, with a special deluxe, signed edition to be available from the Universal Music official store. It is his fifth album to contain original material and his first in six years following Bring You Home.
The release of the album was confirmed in January 2012, during an interview with The Sun, in which Ronan said: "Now I have a new lease of life, and I'm ready to write and record, I'm working on a new studio album, which I hope to release later this year, it will feature brand new songs". "It's not folk. It's a mix! It's a pop album. Gregg Alexander and I are working together again. It's got that 'Life is a Rollercoaster' feel again. I'm having fun with it again, it's been five years since I've done a studio album. I'm a little bit nervous, I just want to make a great record, for me, rather than for anyone else."
To promote the record, Keating embarked on a short promotional tour, which began on 3 August 2012, with the Summarfestivalur in The Faroe Islands, where he performed in front of 14,000 fans. Other dates included the Þjóðhátíð festival in Iceland on 5 August, and the Festas do Mar in Portugal on 17 August in front of 20,000 fans, as well as appearances in Germany and Australia. Ronan undertook two weeks of radio promotion around radio stations in the last week of August. He will perform 'Fires' on Red or Black? on 8 September 2012
