Album: Little Red (2014)


  • This epic breakup song finds Katy singing about about grieving when a relationship crumbles. She penned the track with Fraser T Smith, who is best known for producing and co-writing Adele's "Set Fire to the Rain." Katy joked to Q magazine: "Writing that track helped me get over an ex, but maybe I shouldn't have done it because now everyone is going to ask me who he is."
  • British director Sophie Muller (Katy's "Crying For No Reason") produced the video, which features Katy singing among winter landscapes.
