Songfacts®:

  • This is a track from British rapper/singer Example's third album, Playing In The Shadows. Written over six months, the record draws on his personal experiences. "Then I'd tweak it to make it for everyone," he told The Guardian. "I have developed this new technique: I get a title, and then work backwards from that. They must tell a story, and I believe you can't write good dance music unless you've done ecstasy. Also, it's important that you know what the song is about before you hear it, so it's all there in the titles; Wrong in the Head, Never Had a Day, Under the Influence, Stay Awake."
