Songfacts®:

  • This features the voice of English singer-songwriter Lianne La Havas. She also features on another We The Generation track, "Breath" which is on the deluxe version of the album.
  • Asked by The Boombox how Rudimental go about choosing who to work with, the band's Kesi Dryden replied: "There's no set formula on how we choose, but one thing we're suckers for is a soulful voice, a unique voice. Lianne La Havas came to a few of our shows. So we all met backstage, and we're fans of hers. Her first album, [Is Your Love Big Enough?], was amazing. So we just wanted to get into the studio together - have some fun, not put any pressure on it and see what happens."
