Method of Modern Love is a single by British band Saint Etienne. It was released by Heavenly Records February 9, 2009 (2009-02-09) on limited edition 7" and two limited edition CDs. Strictly speaking, the release is a double-A side with "This Is Tomorrow". However this track does not appear on the second CD.

"Method of Modern Love" was the only new composition (of three new tracks) released on the band's 2009 collection London Conversations: The Best of Saint Etienne. The other two ("This is Tomorrow" and "Burnt Out Car") were reworkings of previous songs. The track was written by Hannah Robinson, Matt Prime and Richard X. It was produced by Richard X, while Hannah Robinson featured on background vocals.

When asked about how he got involved with the song in an interview with HitQuarters, producer and co-writer Richard X said,

"I've been a long time fan of the band and I think it was a few years ago that they asked me to work on a track but I was tied up. Originally I was asked to remix the ‘This Is Tomorrow’ track ... That was in line to be a single but I think they decided they'd go for ‘Method’ after I played them a rough demo. It was originally done by myself, Hannah Robinson and Matt Prime, but was found to be a good fit for Saint Etienne."[1]

The double A-side, "This Is Tomorrow", originally featured in Saint Etienne's film of the same name about the Royal Festival Hall, on London's Southbank.[2] The 7" single features a Richard X reworking of the track, while the CD single features the original soundtrack version.
