Charted: 8

Songfacts®:

  • The first new release by The Veronicas in seven years, this was made available on September 19, 2014. The sibling duo's previous music release was their second album Hook Me Up, which arrived in November 2007.
  • Jess Origliasso and Lisa Origliasso of The Veronicas wrote this with DNA Songs, a songwriting and production company founded by Anthony Egizii and David Musumeci in Australia. "Sometimes a song comes along that no amount of planning as a songwriter can prepare you for," they said. "This song was written and recorded at 1 a.m. in the throes of emotion. We reworked it only a handful of times, leaving it in the raw state it was created."

    "We have never been afraid to write from our hearts, and there is something that captures us when writing about heartbreak that we will always want to share," the Origliasso sisters continued. "Because in the places we are broken, these are the places we learn to become the strongest. This is our time of rebirth."
  • The song's music video, which was filmed at Sydney's State Theatre, follows a group of jealous ballerinas and their unprincipled dance instructor. The clip was inspired by Darren Aronofsky's 2010 movie Black Swan.
