Songfacts®:

  • "All These Nights" is an euphoric song where Tom Grennan finds himself besotted with his new lover. After all the intimate nights they've spent together, the singer doesn't want to lose her and wishes to take their relationship to the next level.
  • Tom Grennan wrote "All These Nights" with his "Little Bit Of Love" co-writers Mike Needle and Jamie Scott, along with producer Rick Boardman. A founding member of the Manchester-based songwriting collective The Six, Boardman also co-penned Grennan's collaboration with KSI, "Not Over Yet."
  • Grennan, Needle, Scott and Boardman wrote the uptempo song during a fortnight-long writing stint in the countryside. "All These Nights" came to them around three in the morning. "We were just like, 'We need excitement,'" Grennan told Nick Grimshaw and Angela Hartnett's podcast. "No one needs another bloody ballad in their lives."
  • When it came to record the track, Boardman sat in the producer's chair with Andrew Wells (5 Seconds of Summer's "Want You Back," Bebe Rexha's "Last Hurrah," Elley Duhé's "Middle Of The Night"). Wells also served as the song's engineer and programmer, played guitar and bass, and shared synthesizer duties with Boardman and Dino Medanhodviz. Scott Selver played the drums.
  • Greenan recorded "All These Nights" for his third album. It's one of several songs on the record inspired by his Italian girlfriend, Danniella Carraturo. "She is a big part of my life," he said, "and she is the reason I really did change my ways."
