When Black Beats Blue is a line from the song “Breathe” off of the album Double-Crosser. Seabound chose it as the album title because the idea of compiling an album of rare and unreleased tracks was in part sparked by two amazing but yet unreleased Breathe remixes. With rare material from 2001 to 2008 and top notch remixers from the electronic genre, this release contains collaborations with HECQ, Forma Tadre, Haujobb, Mindless Faith, and more. The “Domination” remix by Die Form is particularly worth mentioning because Seabound are the only band Die Form has ever remixed throughout its musical career. “Watching Over You (Live SF)” is now professionally mastered on CD for the first time and features Reagan Jones of Iris, recorded during the bands' joint US tour in 2008.

“Metaphorically, "When Black Beats Blue" refers to the single moment when a drowning person can still be saved. In my imagination, that's when water changes its color from blue to black. The shouted "Breathe" lines in the song have always made me think of a lifeguard who urges you to fight and live.”- F. Spinath
