George Ezra wrote and recorded this as the theme song for the UK animated children's TV movie We're Going On A Bear Hunt. It marked the first time that Ezra has composed a bespoke song for film or television.
Ezra said: "Growing up this story was one of my absolute favorites and my mum read it to all of us for many years. In fact she still reads it to her class at school. But this animation is so much more than just a Bear Hunt and I cannot wait for everybody to see it."
The lyrics for Lesley Gore's "It's My Party" were based on actual events relating to his daughter Judy's sweet 16 party. The teenager threw a tantrum and burst into tears when her mum and dad insisted that her grandparents had to be invited.
