The song is Texas having a fresh look at that Giorgio Moroder vibe of uplifting electronic pop but with sexy slow vocals. I wanted to combine modern sounds with a real Billie Holliday kind of feel. When I was growing up my dad would be away at sea and my Mum, my sister and I would be at home blasting disco and Abba alongside her old Billie Holliday albums. I knew the spirit I wanted. I knew I could emulate that Billie Holliday sensibility - not the framed icon with the beautiful flower in her hair, but the slightly dark woman on the edge, this tortured brave singer who struggled around this merciless music circuit. It's a bit of a homage from my heart.
