Never Gonna Let You Down

Album: Gypsy Heart (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • Colbie Caillat spent much of 2013 writing with an acoustic guitar at a cozy house overlooking the beach in Malibu. This is the song everyone loved the most from those first sessions for her Gypsy Heart album. Producer Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds then put his own stamp on the tune. "I love the crisp folk lean to the song," she said. "I can honestly say Kenny is my favorite all-time producer. He's unpredictable and thorough, and he can also brilliantly produce any genre you ask him to."
