This is the lead single by alternative rock group Snow Patrol, from their sixth studio album. The song was written by the band's frontman Gary Lightbody, and produced by Jacknife Lee, who has worked on their previous three sets. It was recorded in Topanga Canyon in Los Angeles. The single premiered on Zane Lowe's Radio 1 show on July 21, 2011 and was released on September 2, 2011.
Brett Simon directed the song's music video. His previous credits include The Killers' "Somebody Told Me." Boston Legal actress Tara Summers and Pirates of the Caribbean actor Jack Davenport both appear in the clip.
Queens of the Stone Age guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen guests on this track.
This song, along with other tracks on Fallen Empires, finds Snow Patrol venturing into dance territory. Lightbody told The Sun: "I've always DJed and dance music has always been a big part of our lives, but it's never really been part of the music. So we just let go a little bit this time."
