"Gravity" is the 2004 lead single from Out of Nothing, the fourth album by English rock band Embrace. Written by Coldplay, the song was first performed live by Coldplay in 2002. Ultimately, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin gave the song to Embrace, although Coldplay released their own version in 2005, as a B-side to the single "Talk". "Gravity" peaked at number seven on the UK Singles Chart and earned a Silver sales certification from the British Phonographic Industry in October 2019. The B-side, "Wasted", started off as "Logical Love Song" and was originally conceived during the Drawn from Memory sessions.

"Gravity" later became the theme song to the TV show Mike Bassett: Manager, starring Ricky Tomlinson. The song was also used in series 2 episode 7 of Gavin & Stacey when Nessa was giving birth to "Neil the Baby".
