The lead single from The Script's No Sound Without Silence album, this was one of the the first songs the band penned for the LP. The song was premiered on BBC Radio 1 on July 23, 2014.
The song has a self-empowerment theme and was inspired by the elation that The Script felt after playing a sold-out stadium show in America. "I'd come off stage and be shouting some Muhammad Ali s--t," laughed frontman Danny O'Donoghue. "Just messing around. So we wanted to try and bottle that and get it down. The Rolling Stones did that – get some of what Jagger called the sexual energy in there."
Shot in Johannesburg, South Africa, by frequent Robbie Williams collaborator Vaughan Arnell, the music video celebrates the everyday heroes of the city, in particular, a father on his workday. The location was inspired by the song itself, with Danny O'Donoghue stating to Capital FM that, "We went to Johannesburg to shoot the video, there were about 200,000 people in the township and it's a pretty poor area. We went down and we set up a stage and basically this carnival atmosphere ensued."
"We had an amazing, amazing time," he added. "We spent a few days there and spent a lot of time with the people in the township, because they are our superheroes, people who are going through the hardest of times but can keep their head held high. That's basically what the song is about."
The song talks of the people in this world who've been fighting all their life and working day and night to make things work. O'Donoghue told The Sun: "We are good at sitting around and talking about issues late at night. That song came from that."
"There's people being bullied and sold to the sex slave trade, yet they remain optimistic and positive," he added. "They're unsung heroes."
