This was the first hit single in the UK for Dido, who is the sister of Faithless member/producer, Rollo. It did well on college radio stations in the US, but was not a hit.
Speaking to Canada.com
in 2013, she recalled: "It was the first song I wrote that was any good. It's a simple love song, written in quite a dark time. I played it for my brother (Rollo) and he took it to his company's A&R meeting and said, 'Look, we need to find someone like this' and they all looked at him like, '…and we can't sign your sister because?' The thought hadn't even crossed his mind. Obviously after that he signed me. It's the track that launched everything for me so it has a soft spot in my heart."
