Songfacts®:

  • Caspa is the stage name of Gary McCann, a Dubstep music producer from West London. In 2010 he teamed up with English R&B/electronica artist Mr. Hudson for a new version of his previously instrumental track, "Back For The First Time." This new rendition became Caspa's first entry in the UK singles chart.
  • Caspa told Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1 about the new version (as reported by True To Sound): "Normally I'm known for doing remixes so it's probably the biggest tune I've done by myself. I always find it frustrating when there's such a big instrumental around and people go, 'I'll tell you what, let's vocal it because we want to sell more records'. But this was really natural and I was thinking if the vocal overtakes the instrumental, I just don't want it to happen. It was weird because it worked so well, it stayed in my head and I just had to do something with it because it's such a nice track."
  • Mo Ali, whose CV includes the British futuristic thriller Shank, directed the song's music video.
