You're In Love With A Psycho was written by Sergio Pizzorno and is the 2nd track on For Crying Out Loud. It was released as the first single off the album on 17 March 2017 and peaked at #62 in the UK charts.

Background

Described by Q Magazine as "Miss You-era Stones slumming it at CBGB's" and "a brilliantly daft slice of disco-punk fun",[1] You're in Love with a Psycho was one of the first songs written for the album and reportedly finished in 15 minutes. Serge referred to it as an affectionate song and a "weird anthem" that was not intended to be dark.[2][3]

The song received its first radio airplay on 17 March 2017, having leaked the day before.

Live

You're In Love With A Psycho was first played live on 9 March 2017 on The NRL Footy Show in Australia, however the performance was not broadcast until 23 March 2017. The song was the set opener at several gigs of Kasabian's UK warm up tour in April 2017.

Kasabian - You're In Love With a Psycho

The official You're In Love With A Psycho video was directed by WIZ and filmed on 3 March 2017 at St George's Hospital in London. It stars Noel Fielding and Stephen Graham, as well as crew members of the band and Bhangra dance group Four by Four. It includes references to Syd Barrett, the novel Brighton Rock, as well as Kasabian's previous album West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum. After briefly being available on a German website on 28 March, the video was officially released on 30 March 2017.

The video, which shows the band members dressed up as patients in a pychiatric hospital, was criticised by mental health charities for being damaging and reinforcing stereotypes.[4]

Lyrics

You know it's the place I need
But you got me walking circles like a dog on a lead
The doctors say I'm crazy
That I'm eight miles thick
I'm like the taste of macaroni on a seafood stick
You got me switched on baby like electric eel
And I'm tight with Axel Foley, that's just how I feel
Like a grapefruit and a magic trick, the prodigal son

I'm walking
I'm walking
I'm walking
I walk so quick

And it just don't mean a thing
We've been waiting far too long
We'll play it out again
This is just my serenade

You're in love with a psycho
You're in love with a psycho
And there's nothing you can do about it
I got you running all around it

You're in love with a psycho
You're in love with a psycho
And there's nothing you can do about it
You're never gonna be without it

Jibber jabber at the bargain booze
Reciting Charles Bukowski, I got nothing to lose
And I wait for you to follow me to share my chips

But you're walking
You're walking
You walk
You walk so quick

Nobody's gonna take you there
I stick around for the thousand yard stare
I go to sleep in a duffle bag
I'm never up, never down, down, down, down

You're in love with a psycho
You're in love with a psycho
And there's nothing you can do about it
I got you running all around it

You're in love with a psycho
You're in love with a psycho
And there's nothing you can do about it
You're never gonna be with

You're in love with a psycho
You're in love with a psycho
And there's nothing you can do about it
I got you running all around it

You're in love with a psycho
Tu amor es muy loco
And there's nothing you can do about it
You're never gonna be without it
