"Sitting In The Dark" was originally meant to only be an acoustic guitar and vocal number when it was brought to Big City Jacks Recording Studio in Bury, Greater Manchester. Producer Tony Long had one listen to the track and then had a heart to heart conversation with Jay about why the track should be turned into something more elaborate. Thus began the Circle Of 5 EP tracking sessions with this song being the single.
The video later went on to be featured on London based promoter Hot Vox's website as part of the Rising Campaign, an effort to raise money for the children of war torn countries who have been left even more vulnerable due to the COVID Pandemic. Jay Dunn then went on to play a live streamed set with players from the video, including guitarist Sonny Scales.
