"Hand on Heart" is the fifth single by English singer-songwriter Olly Murs for his third studio album Right Place Right Time (2012), although released to promote the 2013 rerelease. It was co-written by Murs, Ben Kohn, Pete Kelleher, Tom Barnes, Wayne Hector and Iain James while the production was handled by TMS. Another version of the song was released in Spain with the Spanish pop singer Edurne collaboration.
A music video for the song was released on 4 November 2013. Inspired by the video to Robbie Williams' hit single "Angels", it was shot in black-and-white and directed by Vaughan Arnell, who shot the original video to "Angels".
Williams, who made a cameo appearance in the video, commented, "Imitation is the highest form of flattery. I am easily flattered, and I love Olly. We always have a good time together and this was no exception."
