Writing and recording[edit]

Schreurs told HitQuarters he created the track for "A Night like This" while Degiorgio packed his bags to leave for his hometown Toronto, and then the two "sat down for an hour and knocked out the song".[2] The lyrics are based on a specific scene in the 1967 Bond movie Casino Royale. "A Night Like This" was arranged by David Schreurs and produced by Schreurs and Jan van Wieringen. A video for the song was shot in Amsterdam and Opatija, Lovran and Rijeka in Croatia.

The song has been 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 song has also been used in advertising campaigns for Martini, Wrigley, Nestlé amongst others.
