This was released as the fourth single from the English Synthpop band Hurts' debut album, Happiness. It was penned by the duo and co-produced by them along with Swedish producer and songwriter Jonas Quant, who has also worked with Leona Lewis and No Doubt.
The song's music video was directed by W.I.Z., who also helmed the duo's first visual for "Better Than Love." It was filmed in Romania, at MediaPro Studios. Singer Theo Hutchcraft told NME: "I love Logan's Run and stuff like that. A lot of our videos are in black and white and we wanted to make something in colour."
The visual won Best Video of the Year at the 2012 NME awards.
