“I made this track pretty fast (for me) and I loved it from day one,” Jamie xx previously said of the single in a statement. “When I first heard Robyn’s vocal it was at 6 a.m. after finishing playing at Pacha in Ibiza, it was the perfect moment. Robyn and I have spent time working together and hanging out for some years now, it’s always a joy and always inspiring, I’m so glad and grateful that she is a part of In Waves.”
