Time

Songfacts®:

  • This is the title track of Mikky Ekko's debut album. It was also the last song he recorded for the project. "('Time') really represents a lot of what I went through to get this album done," Ekko told Billboard magazine. "And time is money. It's so valuable to not waste a second doing something that I don't love. That for me is just priceless."
  • Mikky Ekko wrote this with English producer Fraser T Smith, who has collaborated on such songs as Adele's "Set Fire to the Rain" and Taio Cruz's "Break Your Heart."

    Ekko told UK newspaper The Sun: "Ironically 'Time' was the last song to make the album. Fraser and I went to the countryside. We both wanted to get away from the city and write a classic-feeling song. I'm a sucker for love songs so I pulled us in that direction. We finished writing after a healthy glass or two of tequila and I knew 'Time' was going to be the title."
