Much of In the Lonely Hour deals with a case of unrequited love Smith suffered when they fell for a straight man and thus not interested in their advances. The singer explained during their performance at the O2 Academy in Brixton, London that they wrote “Lay Me Down” after deleting the unresponsive man from thier social media account.
Smith explained to MTV News how this was the song that kick-started their music career:
“Disclosure heard ‘Lay Me Down,’ and (after that) it was like a domino effect,” he said. “We wrote ‘Latch’ together, and then Naughty Boy heard ‘Latch’ and we wrote ‘La La La’ together, and then I had a number-one single in the UK.”
The song was re-recorded for a 2015 re-release following Smith’s commercial success.
