Songfacts®:

  • Olly penned this song with Wayne Hector, who has written hits for the likes of Westlife and JLS as well as the singer's "Thinking Of Me" single. Speaking with The Daily Star, Murs explained the message behind the tune: "It's about my fans," he said, "that we are together - is nice. It's a bit cheesy to write a song about you and your fans but you could interpret it as a relationship, marching to the future together."

    He added: "But it was written as me speaking to them saying to grow with me and we can keep going."
  • The track was produced by the production pair of Future Cut who have worked with a wide-ranging range of artists including singer-songwriter Lily Allen, urban pop trio Stooshe, rapper Professor Green and veteran crooner Tom Jones. According to Darren Lewis of the duo, the key to their success in crossing genres is to be able to maximize an artist's potential while allowing them to maintain their individuality.
