Although the yearning ballad may have been new to the ears of anyone who listens to Greg James' radio show, fans of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers probably thought it sounded familiar.
A little too familiar, in fact.
According to The Sun (sorry, but they're patient zero on this one), Petty settled out of court with Smith back in March, after his people noticed the similarities between the 2014 smash and Petty's 1989 hit, I Won't Back Down. He now receives royalties for the multi-million selling track.
When Petty's camp originally pointed it out to Sam's team, they allegedly put up little fuss and gave Petty what he wanted. A popstar copies someone's track, admits it, then pays out. Everyone is happy!
Anyways, I'm going to go plagiarise some elderly tracks and become a songwriter.
