Speaking about working on the album Trevor said: "The best thing about making this album was all the fun and laughter that came from hanging out with musicians and artists that I haven’t seen for years."

Trevor Horn is the mastermind behind many classic songs, including 'Video Killed the Radio Star', 'Relax' and 'Owner of a Lonely Heart'. He also produced Robbie's 2009 album Reality Killed the Video Star.
