  • The track was produced by Canadian electro popgroup Dragonette. The trio's lead singer, Martina Sorbara, is the daughter of Greg Sorbara, who is a Member of Provincial Parliament and formerly the Minister of Finance in Ontario. Martina previously provided the vocals for Martin Solveig's smash hit, "Hello."
  • Roberts told Digital Spy about the track: "Dragonette were the first people I worked with when starting my album. When I wrote 'Lucky Day' I had short hair and was really into '40s fashion. All of the 'woah woah woah woah' and the 'ah ha' really is a reflection of that."
    She continued: "When it came to producing the track earlier this year, I wanted to change it to a more modern downbeat dance record because that's what I am more into now."
