This cut follows Guetta's often-used formula of starting slowly and quietly before developing into a booming synth and bass-filled chorus. ("Titanium" is a good example).
The song features guest vocals by John Legend.
The song is the title track of David Guetta's sixth studio album. "I worked with piano, violins, guitars and blended them with electronic elements," said the French EDM star. "It's also my most personal album lyrically, which is why I called it Listen. Dance too, but really it's from the heart."
David Bowie's "Space Oddity" tells the story of an astronaut who cuts off communication and floats into space. The BBC used it extensively in their coverage of the 1969 moon landing - an odd choice considering the lyrics.
