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."
