Travis frontman Fran Healy, who put songwriting on the back burner after his son was born in 2006, had fatherhood on the brain when he wrote this tune from the band's ninth studio album. "This is one of my favorite songs," he told Apple Music. "It was not even going to be on the record because I was a little bit embarrassed about it, because it was too personal - and it was almost like a show song. It was about 7-year-old me saying to my mom one day, 'Hey, mom, is there a dad shop? Can you go to the dad shop and get me a dad?' I still wish there would be, because everyone needs a dad, and not a shit dad. They need a good dad who's going to be there for them, and be someone to rely on. I never had that. I didn't realize how important a dad was until I became one myself."
