Songfacts®:

  • James Blunt co-wrote this song with Los Angeles songwriter Daniel Parker. The latter was a last-minute replacement for Ammar Malik who had to drop out of the session due to sickness. "So I found myself in a room with James," Parker recalled to Songwriter Universe, "and I'm pretty sure he had no idea who I was. I was new in town, and honestly so nervous, so I just wrote a few hooks to show to James. I played him the hook for 'Heart to Heart' and another one that was more somber."

    "James liked both but it was a gloomy, cloudy day so he thought the more upbeat one would be more appropriate," he continued. "James, Daniel Omelio and their producer Robopop built up an incredible track from there."
  • The song was a hit throughout Europe, reaching the Top 10 in the singles charts of Austria, Hungary and Italy.
