The first track on Armatrading's 2018 album Not Too Far Away
, "I Like It When We're Together" finds her expressing some "Love and Affection
" for a special someone. It's a personal song, but she kept the sentiment universal. "That's really just about people liking being with people," she said in a Songfacts interview. "Whatever the relationship is, whether it's your husband, your wife, your lover, your best friend, or just a group of friends going out to a club or whatever, it's all about just liking being together."
