  • Bo Bruce, christened Lady Catherine Anna Brudenell-Bruce, is the estranged daughter of the Earl of Cardigan. The impoverished aristocrat came to fame when she finished runner up to Leanne Mitchell on the second series of the UK series of The Voice.
  • This song was written by Bruce with her mentor on The Voice, Danny O'Donoghue, frontman of The Script. "It deals with regret," Bruce told The Daily Mail, "and who the last person would be that you thought of at night or at the end of your life."
  • The video was shot in Los Angeles and directed by Maximilla Lukacs. Bruce wanted O'Donoghue to be in clip, but she told The Mail, "his timetable is crazy."
