Dean Lewis conceived this song during a ride in a London Uber back in 2017. He'd just had an argument with a girl, and the chorus line, "Is it too late to turn around, I'm already halfway out of town," popped into his head. Lewis started working on "7 Minutes" as soon as he got home.
The song was recorded at The Barn Studio in North London with British producers Edd Holloway and Nick Atkinson, who also worked on Lewis' breakthrough single "Be Alright."
According to the press release, "7 Minutes" is "about meeting someone, making memories and then feeling regret."
Snow Patrol's 2006 hit tune "Chasing Cars" is referenced in this song.
Kid Rock's "All Summer Long" is a mashup of "Werewolves Of London" and "Sweet Home Alabama." The album it came from was released in October, 2007, but they held off until summer, 2008 for a more seasonable release.
Boston leader Tom Scholz went back to his job at Polaroid after releasing the group's debut album. When his co-workers kept coming by to tell him "More Than A Feeling" was playing on the radio, he knew it was time to quit his day job.
