Songfacts®:

  • This song features John Legend, who Benassi first met at the 2013 Coachella festival. "We have a writer friend in LA called Jean Baptiste who wrote the track 'Spaceship' with us," Benassi revealed to MTV UK. "He was working on 'Dance The Pain Away' with John Legend and asked us if we wanted to get involved with the track."

    "I first met John personally when he came to perform it at Coachella earlier this year," he added. He was really cool and it went off very well but we never actually worked in the studio together technically."
