Songfacts®:

  • The sixth single from Wilkinson's debut studio album Lazers Not Included, the song peaked at #25 on the UK Singles Chart, making it the Drum and Bass producer 's second Top 40 single after "Afterglow."
  • The song features vocals by Tom Cane. The British singer-songwriter previously reached the UK Top 40 as a guest vocalist on Drumsound & Bassline Smith's #34 charting single "Through the Night" in mid-2012. Cane also has a number of notable songwriting credits, including co-penning the title track for Cheryl Cole's third studio album A Million Lights, as well as Matrix and Futurebound's UK Top 10 hit "Control."
  • The song's music video was shot in various locations in Belfast, including the Good Shepherd Church on the Ormeau Road. A scene showing a partially clothed couple kissing on the church altar had to be removed after priests complained. The diocese stated it had not granted permission for a scene of that nature to be filmed there.
