Was just listening to "Play" -- the (2nd) b-side of "High" and wondered if it was a 'Disintegration' castoff. I can't find any documentary evidence but certainly musically and thematically it fits. It didn't make it onto the deluxe album, and wasn't played with the Disintegration live set of b-sides and previously unreleased material, which would have been the best tip-off. Anyone have thoughts, or really any information on the origins of "Play"? It doesn't help that the title is so generic one cannot effectively google search it.
It could well be as Robert has been known to recycle older songs. But there's no record of it ever being included in the Disintegration rehearsals/ sessions. At least not according to Henrik's information which is usually pretty accurate.
