This is the title track of Example's fifth studio album. He explained to The Daily Mirror
why he named the record after this song. "I was looking for a name for the album and thought about Only Human
, but that felt someone who had just won X Factor
, or something," Example said. "'James Arthur: Only Human' you know what I mean? I was going to call it Take Me As I Am
but that seemed a bit bullish."
"Maybe that's the kind of thing I could have gotten away with on album three, but not now," he added. "Live Life Living is the right kind of message to sum up the album as a whole. It sounds good, the message is good, I was trying to find the album title for something."
"Originally Live Life Living felt like a bit of a mouthful because the full line is 'I can't live life living without you' but I liked the three words together, even though my manager thought it sounded like a Pepsi Max campaign," Example concluded.
