Songfacts®:

  • The first new material to be heard from Jamie T since the release of Kings & Queens in September 2009, the song received its premiere on Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show on July 15, 2014 and was released a week later.
  • This finds Jamie T crooning about unrequited love (or maybe love lost) over a slow, dark beat. He commented: "I thought it was kind of different and a nice track. I spent a long time working on songs over the past few years and trying to get power out of slow songs rather than using tempo to get aggression out."

    "I like the melancholy of it," Jamie added, "it's the reason I put it out first."
