Writing and recording
In August 2009 Caro Emerald songwriters David Schreurs and Vince Degiorgio were asked to write a track with a "60s feel" for a Martini vermouth advertisement campaign. The duo readily accepted the commission but grew increasingly unhappy about agreeing to give up the 40s/50s concept they had successfully cultivated with Caro Emerald, and five days of writing sessions proved unsuccessful. On their final day together the writers decided they would return to their familiar era and compose another song for the debut Caro Emerald album. Schreurs told HitQuarters that he made the track for "A Night like This" while Degiorgio packed his bags and then the two "sat down for an hour and knocked out the song". The song was submitted to Martini and although they initially turned it down they later changed their mind and used it in their campaign. It was used in the sixth episode of season 3 of Pretty Little Liars, "Remains of the A" and episode 16 of The Secret Circle, "Lucky". In season one of the TV series Go On, it was used as the opening theme in one of the episodes.
The video for the song was shot in Opatija, Lovran and Rijeka in Croatia.
