Songfacts®:

  • This hymn-like ballad about missing a lover's touch came quickly at the piano to Laura Mvula during an otherwise uninspired day. "It's become the cornerstone of the record. I felt like the tone of The Dreaming Room was set then," she told The Evening Standard.
  • The song was played during the December 18, 2016 "Requiem for a Slut" episode of Showtime's comedy drama Shameless.
