• The song was a collaboration between British producer MNEK and Swedish singer-songwriter Zara Larsson.
"We brought MNEK in because I know that he is a great writer and he produces too. So we got in the studio,
which was basically set up by the labels. It was just such a vibey day the song basically wrote itself.
It took two hours and then we had a new song. It was like, 'Wow! Is it that easy to write a song?'"
• The song was originally supposed to be just for Zara, but then MNEK decided he wanted to record it.
They couldn't agree, so their labels suggested they do it as a duet.

"When Zara and I finished 'Never Forget You' and it came to looking for treatments for the video,
the main thing that was requested was a strong intense narrative. I feel like Richard
Paris Wilson did a great job directing and being the brains behind this video."
"It was shot in Iceland and follows two passionate characters, a lady who goes from young
girl to a grown woman and an 8ft tall monster who is a Big Friendly Giant (like myself a bit, to be honest!)
who from the day they meet until the moment their final days are near are by each other's sides.
Yes I've quoted my own lyrics haha."
