Songfacts®:

  • 220 Kid is a UK producer and DJ. He adopted his performing name after running 220 miles in bright pink pants for charity after his beloved godfather passed away. This shimmering slice of dance-pop finds him linking up with singer-songwriter Gracie.
  • 220 Kid had the basic version of "Don't Need Love" for a couple of years, just trying to get it perfect, with the right voice. Gracey heard the song when she was in a studio and she reached out to 220 Kid with her own ideas to finish the song. The producer was already a fan, so he was more than happy to collaborate.
