The song was co-written by Dave McCabe of The Zutons, who penned the original version of Ronson's big hit, "Valerie
." Ronson told the NME
: "As he wrote the biggest song on my last record I thought, 'Why not bring him out to New York?' We had a few nights out - I met the Valerie
with him! I felt like giving her everything I had on me (mimes taking out wallet), just, 'Thank you!.'"
