Songfacts®:

  • This feel-good tale of carefree summer love features a couple of energetic verses by Macklemore.

    Sundress with you on my arm
    Take the coupe out the garage
    Pull the roof back, just me, you, and the stars.


    Fall Out Boy's Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy croons the chorus in a high falsetto.

    I got this feeling on a summer day
    Knew it when I saw her face
    I just thought that she could be the one
  • The single was released on April 25, 2019. It marked Martin Garrix's first time working with both Macklemore and Patrick Stump. He said he recorded the song "to help get you into that summer state of mind."
