After Noel Gallagher added three female members - Jessica Greenfield, Charlotte Marionneau and YSEE - to his High Flying Birds outfit in 2017, he recruited three backing singers known collectively as Roxy. Speaking in a video
, Gallagher praised his all-female backing singers, saying their vocals have changed his approach to songwriting.
Gallagher thought "Flying On The Ground" was good, but when Roxy came up with their backing vocal part and sang it on the track, they raised it to another level. "Every time I write a song now, I hear those girls in the background somewhere doing something amazing," he said.
