"Crawling Back to You" is a song from American rock band Daughtry's third studio album Break the Spell (2011). It was released October 3, 2011 as the lead pop single and second overall single off the album.[1] Chris Daughtry co-wrote the song with Marti Frederiksen, while Howard Benson served as the record's producer.

The song was a modest chart success, reaching number 41 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number six on the Adult Pop Songs chart. It was also the band's second entry on the Japan Hot 100, reaching 24. In Canada, the song charted at 36, surpassing the chart peak of lead single, "Renegade". Ultimately, it was the only single off Break the Spell to enter the Hot 100.

Background and release[edit]

"Crawling Back to You" was originally recorded for Daughtry's second album, Leave This Town, in 2009, but was left off the final track listing. While working on Break the Spell in 2011, Chris Daughtry returned to the song and worked with co-writer Marti Frederiksen to tweak the chorus; this revised version was then re-recorded and included on the album.[2]

The song and "Renegade" were made available for a free listen on the band's official website on September 19, 2011. It was officially released to digital retailers through RCA Records on October 3. It impacted American mainstream radio on October 25, 2011.[3]

Music video[edit]

The music video premiered on October 26, 2011 and was directed by Laurent Briet.[4] It focuses on the band as they perform the song in an abandoned parking lot. The band relied upon "weird" camera angles and post-production effects to add interest.[2]
