The song reached number 22 in the Danish Charts.[1] The single received significant radio airplay, particularly in Seattle where the band formed.

Cee Lo Green versions[edit]

The song was covered by American recording artist Cee Lo Green on his third studio album, The Lady Killer. The cover inspired the original artist, Band of Horses, to cover Green's song, "Georgia". Green released the first of two versions of "No One's Gonna Love You" on July 6, 2010 (see below). The single was available via digital download, as a promotional CD single and as a limited edition 7" vinyl single, which includes the Band of Horses' cover version of Green's song "Georgia" as the B-side.[3]

Two Versions[edit]

Two versions of Green's song were produced and mixed by producer Paul Epworth. One version appears on the album, and a remix (titled "No One's Gonna Love You - Paul Epworth Mix") was the track for a music video that premiered on July 6, 2010, on Green's official YouTube channel. The video is about a woman being evicted from her home and traveling across the country with her boyfriend.

Also, two versions of the Paul Epworth Mix video were released - one with explicit images featuring brief nudity, and one with slight changes that omit the nudity.
