Songfacts®:

  • Faul & Wad Ad is a French House duo comprising DJs Maxime, who records under the pseudonym of Faul, and Wad Ad, the stage name of Camil Meyer. The pair first met at their Parisian school and started to produce music in between their studies.

    Pnau is an Australian dance act, consisting of vocalist Nick Littlemore - best known for being one half of Empire of the Sun ("We Are The People") - and guitarist Peter Mayes. In 2012, Pnau released Good Morning to the Night, a collaborative record with Sir Elton John, which gave the knighted star his first #1 album in the UK for over two decades.
  • Faul & Wad Ad came across Pnau's 2008 single "Baby," which samples a children's choir and was a Top 40 hit for the pair in Australia. The Parisian duo put their deep house style spin on it and placed their adaptation online. They titled the new tune "Changes" and credited both the French and Australian sides of the creative process in equal measure. The track went on to become an international hit topping the German singles chart and reaching the Top Ten in many other European countries.
