“Welcome to England” was Abnormally Attracted to Sin’s first single. Rythmic and quite radio-friendly, it mixes different sounds and textures and has Tori playing both piano and synths at the same time on some parts. “It’s time for beautiful melodies,” she said to Jambase.com on August 2009. “The sounds [of ‘Welcome to England’] were created around the feelings and working around the song structure; the structures were demanding certain arrangements. It came out sexy and modern.”

The visualette for the song, directed by Christian Lamb, is featured on the bonus DVD of the album’s limited edition.
