Album: Dragonfly (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • This was the last song finished for Dragonfly right before the record was printed. Kasey Chambers described it as one of the few happy songs she has ever written and put out as a single.
  • The uplifting track features mega pop star Ed Sheeran singing backing vocals on it. In our interview with Chambers, she explained how the collaboration came to be. "Harry Hookey and I wrote this song together," she said. "We wrote a lot of the album together. At the time of writing it, we joked that Ed Sheeran would sound good on it, so we asked and he said yes. Ha. I'm a big fan and we are label mates."
