Songfacts®:

  • This bold and bright anthem was released as the second single from Avicii's True album. Underpinned by a driving electronic beat, the song is more of a traditional house music track than the Swedish EDM artist's previous release, "Wake Me Up," which blended country and dance elements. The song received its worldwide radio premiere on Pete Tong's BBC Radio 1 dance music show on August 16, 2013.
  • The song features a vocal from Salem Al Fakir, the Swedish soul-pop singer who sang on Avicii's 2012 dance tune "Silhouettes." Al Fakir is best known in his home country for his Top 3 hit "Keep On Walking," which was runner up in the 2010 Melodifestivalen final, the Swedish national selection for that year's Eurovision Song Contest.
