Songfacts®:

  • The Gorgon City pair of Kye Gibbon and Matt Robson-Scott penned this song with Jimmy Napes, whose other credits include Disclosure's "Latch," Clean Bandit's "Rather Be" and Sam Smith's "Stay With Me."
  • The song features acrobatic guest vocals by North London rising star Zak Abel. The young singer songwriter has previously recorded with Wookie and been on tour with Bondax.
  • Here is what Gorgon City told Q magazine about the cut: "This song is about making the most of the moment, because nothing lasts forever. Jimmy Napes was an inspiring person to work with on this. His way of writing is very unique and when we recorded the choir on it, we learnt a lot from his directing technique."
