  • Lyrics
  • Much of Foxes' All I Need album is about a breakup, then coming out of heartbreak and starting again. This electronic serenade is the first song she wrote for the set. The singer - real name Louisa Rose Allen – recalled to The Independent: "I was a wreck and I wanted to cry and drink alcohol. I was really distraught and some friends put me on a train to Wales to do this writing session with the songwriter and producer Jim Eliot and Jim could see I was a bit of a mess."

    "I said to him I can't even speak I feel like if I do I might start to cry, so I just need to let my body talk and so for the next ten minutes I sat writing this song that made light of the situation because that was the song I needed at the time."
  • Foxes launched the track on May 27, 2015 by breaking the world record for the "most live concerts performed in 12 hours in different cities." The singer's 12 hour mini-tour involved her playing seven gigs in seven different locations.
