Songfacts®:

  • 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 OfficialCharts.com. "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 HMV.com that "Follow Your Fire" is "asking an old friend if they're really doing what they wanted to do."
