Songfacts®:

  • The title track of Don Broco's You Wanna Know EP, "You Wanna Know" was released as the single on August 22, 2013 and became Don Broco's first charting song.
  • This was the first song that Don Broco wrote after their Priorities album. "It was quite daunting for us to jump in to the studio," vocalist Rob Damiani recalled to Contactmusic.com. "We'd literally been on tour the entire time since we released our first album. We finally got off the road and had a bit of time so it was kind of, 'Right, we've gotta get back down to it, and learn how we write songs again'."

    "It was actually the very first idea that we came up with," he added. "We had a few songs together but this was the very first thing that the guitarist sent across, and the one we all worked on and ended up finishing."
  • Damiani explained the story behind the song:

    "I got a phone call from a girl once and we were in this relationship where we didn't really know where we stood with each other. Basically, she phoned me up and the phone call didn't go so well - it kind of annoyed me, and then I wrote down some lyrics and ended up writing about it. It was quite a fun one to kind of vent and get off my chest."
