Two Way

  • songfacts ®
  • Lyrics
  • This song is a duet with English singer-songwriter James Bay. The pair first met during Jools Holland's Hootenanny show. Tunstall had read in an interview that Bay was a fan of hers, so got talking to him. "He told me about going to see my shows when he was younger, so we had a great chat and swapped numbers," she recalled to HMV.com. "I had this song that I thought would be great as a duet and I text him and said 'I know you're busy owning the world right now, but would you be into this?' and he replied and said 'Absolutely.'"

    Bay recorded a demo in a hotel bathroom and sent it to Tunstall. Later, when he happened to be in LA, the pair went into the studio and recorded the track.
