    Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne wrote the song with regular 1D collaborators Jamie Scott, Julian Bunetta and John Ryan. The same quintet also penned together the Four tracks "Ready To Run," "Fireproof" and "Spaces."
  • Speaking to Billboard in a 2020 interview, Louis Tomlinson said that two or three times a year he likes to reminisce by listening back to One Direction songs. This track is a particular favorite. "We opened the tour with it and - I've got goosebumps now - every time I hear that song, it takes me back to that stadium tour," he said.
