This was the first single from British soul and R&B singer Beverly Knight's sixth studio album, 100%.
This bittersweet lament was written by Knight with songwriter Amanda Ghost (James Blunt's "You're Beautiful" and Beyoncé and Shakira's "Beautiful Liar"), and produced by the London based duo The Rural (Gym Class Heroes, Beyoncé).
Knight explained in publicity materials the lyrics are about love and loss: "It's about holding on to the moment you are in," she said, "because sooner or later you may have to say goodbye to that person you love."
Alistair from Daventry, United KingdomDidn't know Blunt didn't write You're Beautiful but I do know beverley Knight is one of the UK's treasures as a soul singer and her latest album is a real tribute to those who went before her.
The seemingly inoffensive song, "Deep In The Heart Of Texas," was banned by the BBC when it was released in 1942. They deemed the song too catchy, with authorities in wartime Britain concerned that factory workers would be distracted if they heard it during a shift.
The bedrock of David Guetta's Nicki Minaj-featuring single "Hey Mama" is a sample of "Rosie," a 1940s prison recording from folk archivist Alan Lomax that songwriter Esther Dean first showed the French DJ on YouTube.
