Songfacts®:

  • The Scissor Sisters open their fourth album Magic Hour with this honky-tonk sing-along. The band co-produced much of the record with German electronic music producer Alex Ridha, and frontman Jake Shears told The Sun he reveled in taking the DJ out of his comfort zone. "What excited me about working with Alex is that he makes f--king banging hard techno so it was a big challenge for him to work on a song like 'Baby Come Home,'" he said. "And that's what makes the record so special — because it was really outside the box for him. I would rather have that than go into the studio with Rick Rubin."
  • Scissor Sisters penned this song about a lover who stays out far too late at night with American R&B singer-songwriter John Legend.
  • The song's animated video was helmed by Lorenzo Fonda, who also co-directed the clip for the band's previous single, "Only The Horses."
