Like most of our songs, it started with the lead riff. , and I think it was the first time I hit a riff that was really positive and really upbeat.”
He continued: “I don’t think we have anything else like it. The message is about being there for someone and letting them know that they are not alone.”
Royal Blood has released a new video directed by and starring Colin Hanks to coincide with the release.
