Story of Song
After the duo had written the track and recorded a few different demo vocals, they felt that Paloma would be perfect for a feature. In an interview with Digital Spy, Joe Lenzie said: “We’d written the track and originally we had Ella Eyre featuring on it but I think she was trying to move away from the dance stuff and she didn’t want to be the feature artist. We were basically just trying to find someone to replace her because obviously she’s got such an amazing voice. It’s quite hard to get someone as solid as that, but Paloma’s performance is amazing on it so we just kind of took it from there.”
