"Hummingbird" is the first single from the German producer LCAW (Leon Weber). It features Sophie Ellis-Bextor, who sings about a love that was so strong it still sets her heart aflutter just thinking about it. When this happens, it sounds like a hummingbird.
Ellis-Bextor told the British newspaper Metro: "It's about a lost love, someone you had a dalliance with and now it's just a memory. It's dancey but melancholy; it's nice working with someone who is very talented and who comes at things from a different angle – he's a classical musician who has gone into dance music."
LCAW posted on Soundcloud: "'Hummingbird' is a very personal track with a more downbeat vibe, I think this is one of the main reasons Sophie instantly felt connected to it. Her voice has such a unique character and she added a whole other dimension to what I had made before we met. We had the recording session in a small studio in Notting Hill which hosted writing sessions for the likes of Adele, James Blunt and Lana Del Rey and it felt like there was a very special atmosphere."
Pete Townshend never had a #1 UK hit with The Who or as a solo artist, but he did produce and play on a song that hit the top spot there: "Something In The Air" by Thunderclap Newman, a group he assembled.
