Songfacts®:

  • Chase & Status' Saul Milton told Spotify listeners how this track about letting of of a relationship came together with guest vocalist Elli Ingram: "This was a very organic process. We come down here to the studio, played her some kind of vibes we're into - Massive Attack, Portishead, Bristol movement from the '90s, which she wasn't familiar with but loved immediately. And then we just quickly, quickly put a beat together, you know, some different layered drums and my bass guitar and the song came out very organically and very quickly. And we were performing it live and some people say it's like a real like Bond theme tune kind of moment and Elli really comes alive on it."
