Seacrest interviews A Great Big World during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions them about the story behind their single Say Something.
I feel like Ian was invested more when we started writing it. Ian was definitely heartbroken the whole way through [writing it]. I didn’t realize I was heartbroken until we started writing the song, like halfway through. There was this girl in my life and it went on for three years and it was un-reciprocated. I thought it was something else and I was younger and I felt something and it was painful but it made me feel alive and I think a lot of it was, I was afraid to let it go I think about it now and I get the chills because it’s so crazy that’s the one that’s connecting to everybody and we felt so alone and now it’s like a healing song and people are listening to it and it’s helping them.
