This song finds frontman Mark Foster trying to keep a friendship going following a breakup.
Come over here and sit next to me We can see where things go naturally Just say the word and I’ll part the sea Just come over here and sit next to me And I’ll take you high
Foster is hoping that by letting the relationship flow naturally between the pair, he might win back the girl.
Mark Foster wrote the song with Josh Abraham (30 Seconds to Mars, Linkin Park, Courtney Love), Oliver Goldstein (Cobra Starship, Flo Rida, Nelly Furtado) and Lars Stalfors (The Mars Volta, Cold War Kids and Matt & Kim).
The Fourclops and Brinton Bryan directed video zooms in on a phone and scrolls through a long Instagram feed that becomes hijacked by the song's clip.
"It was fun to play with the premise of a music video that hijacks your social feed," said Fourclops. "Instagram is a major destination for consuming media these days, and it made for an exciting setting for our video. We asked ourselves, what would it look like if all of the accounts within Instagram become transformed by a song?"
The song was Foster the People's first to reach the Hot 100 in six years. Their previous visit to the chart was in early 2012 when "Don't Stop (Color on the Walls)" peaked at #86.
Originally a chart-topper for Steve Lawrence in 1962 chart-topper, "Go Away Little Girl," became the first song of the rock era to be taken to #1 by two different artists when Donny Osmond's cover version also reached the summit in 1971.
