Newman wrote the song with the intention of writing something to enjoy in the car, and took inspiration from the sun.[2] It is the lead single from his second studio album Revolve. It premiered on Capital FM.[2]

Critical reception

Brice Ezell of PopMatters commended the song for containing a "positively huge" chorus that was "catchy in a near undeniable way",[3] while Alexander Bradley of called it "upbeat and infectious".[4] Tarynn Law of The 405 commended the song's blend of "soul, funk, and gritty, blues-esque lyrical delivery is welcomed",[5] while Natalie Harmsen noted its "upbeat jangly swing accompanied by a funky melody that adds a Pharrell-esque twist".[6]

Music video

A music video was commissioned for the song. It features Newman and starts off black and white before becoming full colour. It features him driving himself and a girl into the sunset.[7] The idea of the video was created by Newman, who explained that he wrote the script for the video while in Los Angeles, and that it was originally intended for another song. Initially, two videos were created – one a prequel to the other – however only one of them was used after "Come and Get It" was selected as the new single. The video was directed by Alex Heron, the only one of Newman's producers who believed that the idea would work. It is based upon an event that happened in Newman's life.[8]
