Guitarist Will Nutter explained to The Alternative Press: "This is a song written about being lost and finding your way. We all change as people throughout the years. Sometimes those changes aren't for the best or they're not where we want to be. This is about finding your way out of those situations."
"Thinking About You" was the ninth track from Calvin Harris' 18 Months album to enter the UK singles Top 10. No other artist has obtained so many hits from one LP - Michael Jackson was the previous record holder with seven Top 10 tunes from both his Bad and Dangerous sets.
