This is Ellie‘s third U.K. No. 1 single, following “Burn” in 2013 and “Love Me Like You Do” in 2015.

The song was released through Amazon Music as part of their Original series back in November.

“I’m so over the moon that I got the chance to sing such a beautiful song so close to my heart by one of the best songwriters of all time – someone who inspired me greatly for the next album and it makes me so happy that people have also become new Joni fans as a result. It’s been a rollercoaster of a year but can’t think of a better birthday present than being the last Number 1 of the decade. Thank you so so much for listening and supporting me for so many years – I can’t wait for you to hear the album early next year and I’ll see you all on tour,” Ellie said in a statement.
