Better Love

Album: All I Need (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • Foxes enlisted Bastille's Dan Smith to help her write this rousing track about escaping a bad relationship. Smith also joins Foxes on the song's chorus.
  • The video finds Foxes roaming around a council estate. "I am renowned for picking places that aren't like Jamaica or LA," she laughed to The Independent, "There's something raw about run-down council estates that I like. It's that normal thing."

    We also see Foxes perched on a loo. "I remember I would read books sat on a toilet seat," she said before adding. "The toilet was down, I wasn't weeing or anything."
