Charted: 12

Songfacts®:

  • The song's joyous Nez-directed music video sees Nutini traipsing around Los Angeles as he encounters an array of '70s-themed dancers, beautiful cheerleaders and other unique Hollywood characters on the way. "What a pleasure it was to make … all of those interesting, beautiful people, giving us an insight into how they do what they do and being kind enough to do it on camera," said Nutini. "[I] loved every second of it. Shine on, you crazy diamonds."
  • Caustic Love was Nutini's third album, and his first with no producer conflict. Nutini clashed with Guy Chambers on his first album, and with Ethan Johns on his second. He told Swide about his positive experience working with producer Dani Castelar on Caustic Love. "He facilitated my ideas, he made them happen beyond my skills," Nutini said. "I kept the record company at bay, I made sure that nobody but me influenced the sessions. He took care of the rest: he found a lot of talented musicians and instruments, he provided a great studio."
