Album: Love in the Future (2013)


  • The Runners original demo for the song's chorus was in a completely different key. Co-producer Dave Tozer told SonicScoop how he went about altering it: "The first thing I did," he explained, "was change the key to put it in a better spot for John's range, then John and I rewrote the song, starting with the chorus melody, then we wrote the rest of the parts around it. We gave the verses more of a bluesy vibe and we added some 808s, a ton of claps, and really made those drums hit."
