Manderson told the story of the song to Orange Music Store
: "It all started about a year ago, the day before I went out to the Bahamas [for the US Mix Show Power Summit]. I contacted a guy on Facebook called Jax who's part of the duo Thundacatz who produced the track. I asked if he was interested in doing any work and he said, 'Yeah, I have the perfect beat for you.' He sent it over and it was a no-brainer. I had the sample on my iPod when I was in the hotel room, everyone else was sleeping and I was walking around the room trying to work out the chorus. But sometimes it pretty much writes itself. The sunshine helped, I don't usually write such happy music, but yes, that's definitely why I'm on fire."
