The song started off as a throwaway memo that Lauv sang into his iPhone. "I came in that day and... I had no concept, no lyrics, no idea I was going to write that song," he told MTV News
. "I had just gotten some new synth sounds, and then I threw in this drum loop, and then I got the whole melody."
"I thought I was going to replace it with a different sound later but I ended up just sending that to my computer and chopping up that voice memo with all the noise and everything and just using that," Lauv continued. "It was probably the fastest song I've written. It kind of feels like it wrote itself, honestly."
Lauv ended up transforming his voice memo into a noise that sounds like some sort of synthesized cello.
