Magnetic Man is an UK dubstep group comprising producers and DJs Skream, Benga and Artwork. This is the follow-up single to their UK Top Ten hit "I Need Air."
The trio told The Guardian that they worked on the song for two weeks to get it sounding perfect.
The song features English singer-songwriter Katy B. Benga produced her breakthrough hit single, "Katy On A Mission."
Katy B told The Daily Star that she likes putting herself in really specific scenarios when she pens the lyrics for her songs. "'Perfect Stranger' was about festivals," she explained, "so I pictured myself late at night, the smells of the other people around me and what the tent I was in was like, the color of it and so on."
The lyrics to "Heartbreak Hotel" were written by a steel guitar player who was once a dishwasher repairman. He was inspired by a newspaper story about a man who killed himself and left behind a note saying only, "I walk a lonely street."
