Interesting facts and trivia about Say You Won't Let Go. By Songfacts®.

This guitar-led acoustic ballad was released on September 9, 2016, after James Arthur first premiered it live at a concert in Romania. The song is about finding love and how Arthur wants the girl to stay in his life, until they are "grey and old."

The song was Arthur's second UK #1 hit, following his <i>X Factor</i> winner's single "<a href="https://www.songfacts.com/facts/james-arthur/impossible">Impossible</a>" in 2012. The singer was asked by <a href="http://www.officialcharts.com/" target="_blank">OfficialCharts.com</a> why he thought it had become a hit. He replied: "I think lyrically it relates to a lot of people as it tells a story. It's a love story that can be adapted to suit any situation someone might be going through. I didn't think I had a hit, but knew it was special, to me anyway."

James Arthur was dropped from Simon Cowell's record label, Syco in 2014 following several controversial remarks made on social media, However, as a result of the buzz surrounding this song, Cowell quickly re-snapped up his former <i>X Factor</i> winner. It marked the first time Syco had ever re-signed a former <i>X Factor</i> artist.
