This song finds Rae Morris dissecting a crumbling relationship. She wrote the song with Londoner Benjamin Garrett (aka Fryars), who also duets with her on the tune. Fryars was discovered by Mika online and co-penned with him his "Celebrate" "Make You Happy" and "Lola" tracks.
Morris told DIY Magazine the story of the song: "I wrote 'Cold' with my friend Fryars and I actually just went around to his house in Golders Green one day, and we just wanted to write," she said. "We had the idea of doing a proper classic duet – like Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood – as we felt like people don't really do that anymore, they do a lot of collaborations. I've been on quite a few, so this felt like we were doing something that was a definite half and half split. We had a lot of fun doing it and it was a real tongue-in-cheek tale of two lovers, but we kept it lighthearted."
Who writes a song about a name they found in a phone book? That's just one of the everyday things these guys find to sing about. Anything in their field of vision or general scope of knowledge is fair game. If you cross paths with them, so are you.
