James Blunt sings on this tune about the shallow nature of life in the Golden State. He has his heart stolen after a one-night stand with one of the California "sun-kissed in-crowd" but the girl just flits in and out of his existence. He told The Sun regarding the song; "It's dark and has a feel to it like the movie Drive."
Blunt wrote the song with Stephan Moccio and Mozella who also co-penned "Wrecking Ball" for Miley Cyrus. Stephan Moccio also writes for The Weeknd and MoZella has also penned tunes for Madonna, Ellie Goulding and One Direction.
Carla Thomas became the first woman to achieve a Top 10 hit on the Hot 100 with a song she wrote herself when "Gee Whiz (Look At His Eyes)" reached the chart's top tier in 1961. Thomas was just 16-years-old when she penned it.
