In My Arms

Album: X (2007)
Charted: 10

Songfacts®:

  • This was co-produced by Calvin Harris, who also co-produced "Heart Beat Rock" on the same album. The Scottish songwriter and producer told Q magazine December 2007 about Kylie Minogue's involvement with penning the tracks: "She was involved in the songwriting. I came down with backing tracks and we finished the song together. She's very good with melodies. There are pop singers who can't sing and have their songs written by other people. Whereas she helped write the songs and then sang them perfectly."
  • Harris admitted to The Daily Mail August 7, 2009: "It was scary being in a little room with Kylie. I needed a shot of Jack Daniel's to calm my nerves. That wasn't a very good idea. It was early in the morning and I ended up a bit drunk, but just as nervous. But Kylie was amazing. I didn't realise just how much she contributed musically."
