English singer-songwriter Elyar Fox was first noticed on YouTube where he'd been uploading his cover versions of hit tunes and cultivating a fan base of "Foxers." As views on his YouTube channel reached over 10 million, Elyar attracted increasing interest from all of the UK's major labels, before eventually signing with Global Talent, in conjunction with RCA.
This song was released as the lead single from Elyar's debut album and was co-written by the singer himself. Asked by District MTV what inspires his music, Eylar replied: "I guess I just write about things that are going on in my life, I'm always doing things and meeting new people and girls, and that's a big inspiration for me."
The third verse of "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm" by Crash Test Dummies ("they shook and lurched all over the church floor...") was inspired by girl whose parents would speak in tongues at their Pentecostal service.
