Songfacts®:

  • This collaboration between Scottish singer-songwriter Emeli Sandé & Rick Smith of Underworld was penned for the Danny Boyle movie Trance. Both artists were prominent contributors to the Danny Boyle helmed London 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony and Smith commented: "For a film composer, working with Danny is a joy, because he's both a great collaborator and a giver of artistic freedom, he loves to be surprised, and also wants his film music loud and with presence, almost like another character - for me this is creatively exciting and inspiring.
    "And it was a real joy to work with Emeli again," he added, "her passionate soulful voice and wonderful lyrics are a perfect ingredient of the score."
  • Sandé said: "It was wonderful to work with Rick again after the amazing time I had with him putting together the track for the Opening Ceremony at the Olympics. I was honoured to be asked to collaborate with him again for the film and, with his help, I believe we have created something very special."
