This song features a collaboration with fellow Scot Paolo Nutini. Kyle Falconer (vocals/guitar) told The View Are On Fire
that he "was thinking about him - like his kind of music and the way he sings it," when he was writing this song. The band then "recorded it in a simple way and then Paulo happened to be next door in the studio. So I just says, 'D'you want a shot at singing on it?' It was already finished, there was no intentions of anybody else singing on it. So he just did a couple of my verses and they sounded good together."
