  • Lyrics
  • This disco anthem about living in the moment despite a faltering relationship features "Hideaway" singer Kiesza. Vocalist Simon Le Bon first came across the Canadian when he was in a gym and she came on the TV screen. Drummer Roger Taylor told HMV.com: "He thought she had an incredible voice and she was just right for that particular track."
  • The duet with Kiesza brings out the best of Simon Le Bon. He told Duranduran.com that after a few years of rebuilding with a voice therapist, "I developed a power I've never had before — it's the power of being in a completely relaxed manner."

    Le Bon added: "When I listen to older recordings, particularly live things, I was much more strained. I've learned to relax my whole head, neck, shoulders, chest when I sing."
