Songfacts®:

  • In 2016 Avicii embarked on a once-in-a-lifetime, 10-day road trip with fellow artists and lifelong friends that took him from California across to Florida, via the Grand Canyon. One of the first tracks to come out of that process was this song of freedom, empowerment and independence, featuring Swedish singer Sandro Cavazza.
  • Avicii said that lyrically, this is about "leaving the nest but in terms of love. A breakup but a bit deeper."
