Released in support of the album God In Three Persons, the A-side is a cover of The Swinging Medallions' "Double Shot (Of My Baby's Love)" which had previously been heard as part of The Third Reich 'n Roll in 1976. "Double Shot (Of My Baby's Love)" itself is not included on God In Three Persons, but the song's main riff is featured throughout the album as a recurring motif. The B-side is an instrumental version of the album track "The Thing About Them".
Double Shot was issued on 7" vinyl and on 3" mini CD and was a part of the group's initial intention to release the God In Three Persons album in a manner akin to "potato chips", ie. in a variety of flavours. This release campaign also saw the release of an instrumental version of the album and the "Holy Kiss Of Flesh" single, which was to be followed by at least one more additional single which never eventuated.
