  • This was released as the lead single from singer-songwriter Tom Odell's debut album, Long Way Down. He described it to Digital Spy as "definitely the most raucous" tune on the record and "probably the least piano track. He added: "It was just a different feeling I wanted to get across - of being in love and not wanting them to leave."
  • British director Sophie Muller (Rihanna's "Stay," Lana Del Rey's "Young And Beautiful," shot the clip, which has Odell and his band performing in a dark club.
