Collins wrote this track with Franz Ferdinand's Alex Kapranos and Nick McCarthy. Kapranos told The NME: June 26, 2010 about teaming up with Collins: "He's a good laugh, but a serious writer and, as I've been banging on about in every interview for almost a decade, a big influence on me and my writing. The song was written very quickly, Edwyn showed us the chords and melody he had for a verse. He barred the chords while William Collins (Edwyn's son) strummed the strings. He described it as a 'very Franz Ferdinand' set of descending chords, which made me laugh, as the vocal melody was pure Edwyn."
