Under The Sun by Cheryl Cole

Album: A Million LightsReleased: 2012Charted:
  • Cheryl co-wrote this summery tune with Alex Da Kid, and the latter also produced the song. The English knob twiddler was also responsible for the lead single from A Million Lights, "Call My Name."
  • This cut is one of two tracks on A Million Lights where Cheryl penned the lyrics. Some have queried whether such lines as, "I won't give you my heart coz it won't break twice" refer to the breakdown of the singer's marriage to footballer Ashley Cole.
  • Cheryl explained the lyrical content to Pop Justice. She said: "It's a really fun song. It's about a guy telling you anything you want to hear to get his way, and you saying, 'actually, normally I wouldn't, but today I might.' The sun just makes you feel good."
  • The song's music video was shot at the Merton Studios in South London where the ITV cop show The Bill used to be filmed. It was directed by Anthony Mandler, who also worked on Cole's "Call My Name clip." The visual sees the singer travel back to the 1950s and the director explained in a behind-the-scenes film that he envisioned the star playing a Sophia Loren-like character.
