Songfacts®:

  • Example told The Daily Mirror the story of this song. "The key thing was wanting to start the song like a piano ballad, and I actually wrote the piano bit you can hear at the start," he said. "And then it goes into a trancey techy build up, and then there's this sudden, aggressive release. You have this gentle piano and people definitely don't get it, your first instinct is 'Is this some f--king Adele cover?' And then halfway through it goes a bit Laidback Luke and then it drops and you're like "f--k!"
