The 'Take Me To the Truth' title was inspired by Labrinth's decision to shun big-name collaborations on the album. "The truth is, I'm not going to pretend to be friends with loads of Hollywood stars and put them on my album and make s--t records with them just to have their name on there," he told Digital Spy
. "I did work with a few US artists - like, massive names - but I just didn't think the songs were quite right, so I thought, 'I don't want to put out crap music.'"
"I don't want to make something I don't enjoy, because I'm going to have to sing it for the next two years," Labrinth added. "I was like, 'Just don't do it, don't put it on the album.'"
