Songfacts®:

  • This rollicking, horn-tinged song features vocals by Foy Vance. The Northern Irish singer-songwriter is best known for his song "Make It Rain," which was covered by Ed Sheeran for the US TV crime series Sons Of Anarchy.
  • The video was shot in locations across the globe, including the UK, Morocco, Ukraine and Los Angeles. Rudimental collaborated on the visuals with director Nez Khammal who previously worked on the quartet's "Waiting All Night" clip.
  • It was Ed Sheeran who introduced Rudimental to Foy Vance, when the red-haired singer was touring with them. Rudimental and Vance holed up in a mini studio housed on the group's tour bus and recorded this song. "It was exciting to produce a song like that from start to finish on the road," Rudimental's DJ Locksmith told Spin.
