Joe McElderry recorded the song for a United Kingdom release. It was released on December 6, 2010 as the b-side to McElderry's "Someone Wake Me Up" where it sold over 7,000 copies. Due to Sony Music's tight recording schedule, McElderry accidentally sang "king and queen" in the chorus instead of the printed lyric, "kings and queens" (referring to the kings and queens of Narnia), although attempts were made to electronically correct this in post-production.
