I Need You Now

Album: In Case You Didn't Know (2011)
  • The closing track of Olly Murs' second album In Case You Didn't Know was penned by the English singer-songwriter with Martin Brammer, who is a former member of '80s Blues-Rock trio The Kane Gang and ex-country performer Adam Argyle who has also worked with the likes of Melanie C and Newton Faulkner. The trio previously penned Murs' 2010 single "Busy."
  • Speaking to Entertainmentwise, Murs explained: "It's basically about me trying to find the right girl and not finding her yet."
  • Murs told Artist Direct that he wanted to do a song, "that wasn't about heartbreak but about meeting the right girl." He added: "It's a day dream thinking about the perfect girl. She's out there somewhere waiting for me."
