Did You Know?

Interesting facts and trivia about Heavenly. By Songfacts®.

This song was inspired by the overwhelming beauty frontman Greg Gonzalez witnessed as he watched a sunset that went on for hours and hours.

Cigarettes After Sex had just been playing a summer festival in Latvia in 2016; the crowd had gone crazy for their set and they were all on a high. The band walked over to a secluded beach that was part of the festival and sat down to bask in an endless sunset. Said Gonzalez to Apple Music: "It was one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. And I remember thinking to myself, 'This is where I should be right now. This is the place I'm kind of meant to be.' It was this moment of clarity, and I put it in the chorus of 'Heavenly.'"

As Gonzalez worked on the track, he turned the feeling he sings of in the chorus into something more about intimacy and romance. The singer told Paper Mag: "It's a really intimate song; the lyrics are like words might whisper to someone. This is one that started off being about a certain feeling, then transition into being about an actual person."
