Songfacts®:

  • This features the voice of Tom Grennan. Not long after the Bedford born singer-songwriter was talent-spotted on SoundCloud by Sony, Chase & Status asked to work with him. Greenan not only co-wrote and sung on this track, but also opened for the electronic music duo's Wireless Festival show.
  • Will "Status" Kennard told BBC Radio 1's Annie Mac about the collaboration when she premiered the song. "We got a really rough demo of this kid singing. It wasn't really a finished song and we said, 'Hang on'. Something about his voice didn't sound like anything else and he came into Metropolis in London, never been in a proper studio before - and he sat down and got out his guitar. We realised, this kid's cool."
  • BT Sport picked the tune to soundtrack their advertising campaign for their coverage of the 2016-17 Premier League, Champions League, Europa League and FA Cup.
  • Asked what he learned from working with Chase & Status on the song, Tom Grennan replied:

    "To not rush and just to be calm with a song and calm with the process. When I went in there, I was thinking, 'I've got to take a tune with me.' But we got to it and let it happen naturally. That's the beauty of a song, the spontaneity of it, and I love that."
  • This was released as the lead single from Tribe. Asked about the album title by HMV.com, Saul Milton (aka Chase) replied:

    "Tribe was the first title, we had the theme down and it was all going to tie in with the amount of percussion we had on the record, then we moved away from that. We were in the doldrums about a name, we didn't have one, we couldn't think of one, then we had a great run of tracks, got a lot done and we came back around to Tribe. It felt like the correct name."
  • Tom Grennan told NME the story of the song: "They(Chase & Status) heard the song Something in the Water and asked if they could use that. I was like, 'Er I don't know. I've got this other idea though', and it was like a skeleton at that point, but we built the song from there."
