Songfacts®:

  • This is the first official single by British electronic dance music artist Nicholas Bracegirdle, who records under the name of Chicane, from his fourth studio album, Giants. The song features the vocals of Adam Young, who is better known as Owl City.
  • In an interview with Men's Health, Bracegirdle was asked if he is a big runner. He replied: "I am a runner actually. I have always loved running, but use it more these days to stem my out-of-control eating habits. I run approximately three to four miles a day and nearly all of it uphill as I live in the Alps as well as the UK. Running in the mountains is not for the faint of heart – I run at 1300m above sea level and when I come back from a gig and go out running to sweat out the alcohol, I bloody know about it!"
