Songwriter Katie Farrah Sopher claimed to have written the lyrics to this song as well as "White Noise
," and "You & Me
." She alleged that the words for the three tracks as well as AlunaGeorge's "Attracting Flies
" were taken from her songbook, which was stolen by an ex-boyfriend, Sean Sawyers, in 2009.
According to Sopher the four songs were inspired by the abuse she endured during her five-year relationship with Sawyers, who then passed the songbook on to music industry contacts. She claimed £200,000 damages, but Sawyers denied all the allegations.
Disclosure refuted Sopher's claims via a post on their Facebook page: "We want to make it very clear that every Disclosure song we have put our names to has been written by us," they wrote. "We sometimes write lyrics and melodies alongside whoever the featured singer may be (ie Sam, Eliza etc) and the great Mr Jimmy Napes, but that is it."
"When we do, we always make sure everyone gets proper credit. We take great pride in our self sufficiency, our work and the way we work, and it's incredibly frustrating when someone tries to take that away from us, by claiming we stole even one word or one note of our music from anyone."
