This features English singer-songwriter Judie Tzuke, who is best known for her classic 1979 UK hit "Stay With Me Till Dawn."
Morcheeba are brothers Paul and Ross Godfrey. They formed the trip-hop duo Morcheeba in the mid 1990s together with lead vocalist Skye Edwards after a chance meeting at a party. Edwards left in 2003, and since then the brothers have used a number of different vocalists. By the release of Dive Deep Morcheeba had sold over 6 million albums.
DJ Paul Godfrey on the band's website: "This song came about after a long conversation about Los Angeles. Both Ross and Judie (Tzuke) had just come back from there and when the chat ended we wrote it in about 20 minutes. It was perfect, one of our very best and the lead single. It sounds like Fleetwood Mac in their prime."
Multi-instrumentalist Ross Godfrey discussed the album on the band's website: "This is the first record we've made where we weren't looking at our contemporaries and wondering what's going on, where we just made the record we wanted to make. We used an incredible amount of new technology for this album, but it's all new-old stuff – ancient keyboards, like claviolines. It's all very organic. The technology came into play in the way that we edited it and put it together."
Joel Trussell, who is an animator whose work has appeared on the popular kids' show Yo Gabba Gabba!, created the music video for this song.
The first version of The Beatles "Helter Skelter" was a 27 minute jam, so you can imagine what Ringo was going through pounding away all that time. To convince the guys that he needed a break, he screamed, "I've got blisters on my fingers!" This was included on the fadeout.
