"Sweet Nothing"
(2012)

"Sweet Nothing" is a song by Scottish singer-songwriter and producer Calvin Harris from his third studio album, 18 Months (2012). It features vocals from Florence and the Machine singer Florence Welch. Harris previously worked with the band in a remix of their single "Spectrum" (2012). While recording 18 Months, Harris expressed interest in working with Welch. He mentioned that it was not easy and he had to chase her, due to schedule conflicts. Welch accepted his invitation and the two recorded "Sweet Nothing". The track premiered on The Chris Moyles Show on BBC Radio 1 on 28 August 2012 and was later released as the fifth single from the album on 12 October 2012.

"Sweet Nothing" is an EDM song, with heartfelt vocals and an escalating beat. Lyrically, it talks about a romance with no depth, where the protagonist is receiving "sweet nothing". Critical reception of "Sweet Nothing" was positive, with many critics praising its production and Welch's vocals. The song debuted at number one on the UK Singles Chart, marking Harris' first number-one single as a main artist in the United Kingdom since his 2009 single, "I'm Not Alone". The song is also Welch's first top-ten hit in the United States, peaking at number 10. "Sweet Nothing" was nominated for Best Dance Recording at the 56th Grammy Awards.

The music video for the song, directed by Vincent Haycock, premiered on 20 September 2012. In the video, Welch works as a singer at a bar or club, pouring the pain and frustration of her unfulfilled life and abusive relationship into every revealing and explosive performance. However, after recognising the benefits of her seedy environment, she plots to rid herself of her boyfriend.

Background and development[edit]

"It's more satisfying when you're pursuing something. It's like chasing a girl or something. It's way more satisfying if you put in a year's worth of effort of chasing and then you get the result, you get the vocal."

—Harris on working with Welch.[1]

On 30 July 2012, Calvin Harris stated via his Twitter account that his third studio album 18 Months would be released at the end of October 2012.[2] In an interview with 4Music, Harris explained that the album would be "like a compilation, a NOW album with me all over it."[3] While recording for the album, 18 Months, Calvin wanted to collaborate with Florence Welch.[1] He had previously worked with her band Florence and the Machine on a remix of their 2012 single 'Spectrum' (2012). It eventually peaked at number-one on the UK Singles Chart.[4] He told MTV News that the thrill of the chase only made her vocal contribution that much more special.[1] Harris' history with Florence started far before the year and a half he dedicated to making the album. He further explained:

"I met Florence for the first time end of 2007 and the first time I ever saw her in my life, it was like weird corporate [party] and I walked into the green room and she was definitely drunk, getting a piggy back off someone in her band, like with a bottle of champagne, screaming. And I thought 'I like this girl.'... And in the years [since] she just actually grew up. I wasn't expecting that," he said. "I thought she was a cool kid, one of those people who come and go and then she just smashed it." He added, "Now Florence is Florence. She's cool as fuck as well."[1]

To record the track, Harris had to go after Florence to record her vocals for the track. He also stated, "With Florence, she was really busy at that time. She was in the middle of a tour and she had like three days to record something, so I wasn't there, anything could've come back." Calvin was pressed for time when he got the call and finding out Florence would do the vocals on "Sweet Nothing." He hadn't started working on the song and scrambled to give her a track to record the vocals on.[5] He told Rolling Stone that, "I didn't think she'd do it. She seemed a really unattainable artist to reach for. I think she would've done it if the song was right and the people were right and it was all at the right time. I did a remix for her and she owed me a favor – I guess part of it was that."[6] "Sweet Nothing" first premiered on The Chris Moyles Show on BBC Radio 1 on 28 August 2012,[7] and was released as the fifth single from the album on 14 October 2012.[4]

"Sweet Nothing" was written by Calvin Harris, Florence Welch and Kid Harpoon, while production was handled by Harris.[8] He also serves as the arranger and plays all instruments of the track. The song was recorded by Harpoon and mastered by Simon Dave. Welch, from the band Florence and the Machine, is the vocalist of the track. It is an electronic dance music song, following the familiar pattern of taking love-strung vocals and layering them over a bouncy, ever-building beat.[9] The tale of "Sweet Nothing" is a romance with no depth. It addresses a relationship. "You took my heart and you held it in your mouth/ And with a word all my love came rushing out/ And every whisper, it's the worst, emptied out by a single word," Welch begins the track.

Critical reception[edit]

"Sweet Nothing" features Florence Welch (pictured), who received favourable reviews from music critics, for delivering "tamed", but "special" vocals.

"Sweet Nothing" received generally favourable reviews from music critics. After its premiere on the radio, Robbie Daw of Idolator stated, "If there was any doubt as to whether Harris is the current king of frothy, radio-friendly dance pop on both sides of the Atlantic, one need only listen to this energetic jam."[7] Chris Smith of Yahoo! UK called it "a pop pairing made in heaven", writing, "The club friendly track features Calvin's latest knob twiddling genius that never seems to get old despite debuting in last year's monster anthem 'We Found Love'. Flo's vocal again lends itself effortlessly to the track—it's somehow difficult to understand why she hadn't ventured into this territory before. 'Sweet Nothing' manages to sound anthemic without needing the big drop."[10] Billboard was very positive, writing, "The bass glimmers underneath Welch's operatic chants, as the singer, freed momentarily from her well-oiled Machine, gets to re-imagine her career as a dance goddess. It delivers its irresistible throb via a special voice."[11] Rebecca Nicholson of The Guardian called it "the highlight of 18 Months."[12]

Emily Mackay of NME agreed, stating that "the highest point apart is Florence's dance-diva turn on the p-p-p-p-powing power-house of 'Sweet Nothing'."[13] Adam Pollock of Filter magazine opined, "A thrilling guest vocal by Florence Welch adds an excitingly dark vibe to the album, which for the most part stays in booty-shaking mode."[14] Tim Sendra of AllMusic was mixed, writing that "Florence Welch's desperate wail that pushes is over the top."[15] Melissa Maerz of Entertainment Weekly agreed, writing that "Welch's banshee wail gets buried under the laser-gun peals of 'Sweet Nothing'."[16] Robert Copsey of Digital Spy felt that the song "lacked originality and felt more like attempt to fit in rather than stand out."[17]

Commercial performance[edit]

United Kingdom and Ireland[edit]

In the UK midweeks charts, "Sweet Nothing" was ahead of Swedish House Mafia, knocking their track "Don't You Worry Child" into second place.[18] On 21 October 2012, the single topped the UK Singles Chart, becoming their second number one single in three months, following Harris's remix of Florence and the Machine's "Spectrum (Say My Name)" in topping the UK chart.[19] It is also Harris' fifth number one single in the UK either as a solo or featured artist. On 27 October 2012, the song dropped to number 3.[20] In its third week, it fell to number 6.[21] It also topped the chart in Ireland where it became his third number one singles on that country after "We Found Love" and "We'll Be Coming Back".

In its sixth week, the single entered the top-forty, climbing to number 33.[28] After a fall to number 40, the song jumped to number 24, also peaking at number 20 on the Pop Songs chart.[29] In its tenth week, the song reached number 20 on the Hot 100,[28] becoming Harris' third top-twenty single.

Music video[edit]

On 23 August, Harris announced via Facebook that he was filming the music video for "Sweet Nothing" with Florence and the Machine.[32] The video was filmed over two days at a working men's club in Dalston, London, under the direction of Vincent Haycock[33] who also directed Harris' videos for "Flashback", "Bounce" and "Feel So Close". The exterior shots were filmed close to Stepney Methodist Church Bus Stop on Commercial Road, Limehouse, London. The music video premiered on 20 September 2012 through Harris' YouTube VEVO channel.[34] The video stars Harris and Welch, as well as English actors Leo Gregory[35] and Kianoush Joseph.[36]

Storyline[edit]

The video begins with Gregory sitting in a restaurant after breaking up with Welch. As he leaves the restaurant he passes his food to a hooded man, who becomes confused as to why Gregory gave it to him. Meanwhile, Welch is seen in a suit onstage at a nightclub where she is performing. Gregory gets stopped by a group of men hired to beat him by Calvin Harris as revenge after listening to Florence Welch's story of her and Gregory's violent relationship and break-up. He tries to fight back, resulting in an even more severe beating. While he gets brutally beaten, Welch also "feels" the pain as she sings on the stage. There are also scenes of Gregory fighting with his girlfriend and his girlfriend telling her story to Calvin Harris. Harris watches as Florence takes off her suit and tie and frees her hair. Welch continues her angry and energetic dancing as the video ends, along with the flashbacks, with Gregory still being assaulted by the men, and Gregory's girlfriend still distraught in the bathroom.[37]
