No Rome told Zane Lowe today (August 28) that The 1975 frontman Matty Healy heard a demo of the track and asked to be featured.
Healy previously confirmed that he and Daniel had been working with No Rome in a tweet, writing: “NO ROME AND ME AND GEORGE MADE A RECORD ITS WILD OMG SO GOOD”.
In a Beats 1 interview with Zane Lowe earlier this year, he discussed the project further, saying: “It’s so exciting to be working with him. I just fell in love with it completely. I’d never seen him, I didn’t know who he was or anything. I flew him over to the UK because I was just too excited, and, when I get that excited, then I know that I’ve got to do it. We moved it over and signed him to Dirty Hit, and the rest was history.”
He added: “We’ve been making the record for six months together so he’s just been there working away. It’s been so good. I’ve been trying to do the Kanye thing of, like, ‘Give me all your best beats.’”
