  • James Blunt concludes his Moon Landing album with this yearning declaration of love. The song was co-written by Blunt with Steven McEwan (Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban) and produced by Martin Terefe (KT Tunstall, Martha Wainwright, Jason Mraz).
  • Moon Landing was executive produced by Tom Rothrock (Beck, Moby, Foo Fighters), who worked with Blunt on his debut LP Back To Bedlam. "This is a much more personal album, and also quite back to basics," said Blunt. "It's about me and Tom, the producer, finding where the story all started and where we are now. It's an album about dreams, longing, first love. About looking in the mirror and seeing the boy you were, the man you are – and learning to be comfortable with that, flaws and all."

    "About getting back to basics and rediscovering the power of music to communicate emotion directly and honestly, without too much polish or complication."
