  • This unlikely collaboration between British EDM producer Calvin Harris and Californian rock band Haim is about the end of a relationship:

    I lost the feeling but I try to hold on
    I thought the end of a love is what made you strong
    I pray to God, I just don't know anymore

    The Haim sisters are struggling to deal with the emotional pain arising from the break up.
  • Haim are managed by Roc Nation, the same label that Harris is signed to.
  • Calvin Harris told The Daily Star that it was Haim who initiated the collaboration. "They started the idea rather than me going to them with an instrumental," he said. "That was quite nice, working on an idea I was never going to have by myself from people who are awesome at writing music, that I can finish off and make it sound like I want it to sound."
