  • Lyrics
  • This rousing, folky-electronica track was produced by pop hitmaker Steve Mac, whose credits includes Ed Sheeran's "Shape Of You" and Pink's "What About Us." Kodaline frontman Steve Garrigan told "It's kind of a new sound for us. My comfort zone is in slow ballads – this is not a slow ballad in any sense."

    He added: "There was no real plan when we were writing it. It's definitely big – it's a big sound. You could say go big or go home but that wasn't intended."
  • Regarding the song's meaning, Steve Garrigan told that "Follow Your Fire" is "asking an old friend if they're really doing what they wanted to do."
