This song about heartache and heartbreak is the lead single from the European re-release of American singer-songwriter Nicole Scherzinger's debut studio album. The song made its premiere on October 18, 2011 at Capital FM.
The Australian Dance-Duo Olivia and Mim Nervo wrote the song. The twin sisters also penned the top line of the David Guetta and Kelly Rowland hit "When Love Takes Over" and collaborated with Kesha on her track, "Boots & Boys."
The Danish producer Soulshock was the man twiddling the knobs. He has also worked with Bruno Mars, Pitbull and Usher.
The accompanying video was filmed in the Xilitla rainforest, which is based in Mexico.
The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
