This song featuring horns and a gospel choir backing is about La Havas' relationship with her boyfriend. The singer's beau is a recording mixer engineer called Ben, who she met on her travels. La Havas told The Independent: "It's basically about being so sure about the love you have for each other that you don't need to say it to each other any more, you know what I mean? You just know by how they are with you."
The song was produced by Aqualung's Matt Hales, who also helmed La Havas' debut album Is Your Love Big Enough?
Bruce Springsteen wrote "Blinded By The Light," which was a #1 hit for Manfred Mann's Earth Band. The "Madman Drummers" line is a reference to Springsteen's first E-Street drummer, Vinnie "Mad dog" Lopez.
