This was the second single released from Scottish singer-songwriter Paolo Nutini's sophomore studio album Sunny Side Up.
This soulful ballad was written by Paolo Nutini and produced by the singer together with Ethan Johns (Kings Of Leon, Ryan Adams, Ray LaMontagne).
The song concerns Nutini's struggles with marijuana but it can be listened to from other perspectives. The singer explained on his website: "Its about my own conflict I had about marijuana but you can hear it as a song about relationships, compromising, having to deal with someone else's emotions. It's about bad habits and breaking up, but I wanted to keep it positive."
Taylor Swift's “Shake It Off” was inspired by how she'd learned to deal with all the false rumors that circulated about her. "The only thing we can control is our reaction to that ,” said Swift. "You can either let it get to you … [or] you just shake it off."
