“Sweet Nothing” is a song by Scottish DJ Calvin Harris from his third studio album, 18 Months (2012). It features vocals from Florence and the Machine singer Florence Welch. Harris previously worked with the band in a remix of their single, “Spectrum” (2012). While recording 18 Months, Harris expressed interest in working with Welch. He mentioned that it was not easy and he had to chase her, due to schedule conflicts. Welch accepted his invitation and the two recorded “Sweet Nothing”. The track premiered on The Chris Moyles Show on BBC Radio 1 on 28 August 2012 and was later released as the fifth single from the album on 12 October 2012.

“Sweet Nothing” is an electronic dance music song, with heartfelt vocals and an escalating beat. Lyrically, it talks about a romance with no depth, where the protagonist is receiving “sweet nothing”. “Sweet Nothing” received favourable reviews, with many critics praising its production and Welch’s vocals. The song debuted at number one on the UK Singles Chart, marking Harris’ first number-one single as a main artist in the United Kingdom since his 2009 single, “I’m Not Alone”. The song is also Welch’s first top-ten hit in the United States, peaking at number 10. “Sweet Nothing” was nominated for Best Dance Recording at the 56th Grammy Awards.

The music video for the song, directed by Vincent Haycock, premiered on 20 September 2012. In the video, Welch works as a singer at a bar or club, pouring the pain and frustration of her unfulfilled life and abusive relationship into every revealing and explosive performance. However, after recognising the benefits of her seedy environment, she plots to rid herself of her boyfriend.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
You took my heart, and you held it in your mouth
And with a word, all my love came rushing out
And every whisper, it’s the worst
Emptied out by a single word
There is a hollow in me now

[Chorus]
So I’ll put my faith in something unknown
I’m living on such sweet nothing
But I’m tired of hope with nothing to hold
I’m living on such sweet nothing
And it’s hard to learn, and it’s hard to love
When you’re giving me such sweet nothing
Sweet nothing, sweet nothing
You’re giving me such sweet nothing

[Verse 2]
It isn’t easy for me to let it go
‘Cause I’ve swallowed every single word
And every whisper, every sigh
Eats away at this heart of mine
And there is a hollow in me now

[Chorus]
So I’ll put my faith in something unknown
I’m living on such sweet nothing
But I’m tired of hope with nothing to hold
I’m living on such sweet nothing
And it’s hard to learn, and it’s hard to love
When you’re giving me such sweet nothing
Sweet nothing, sweet nothing
You’re giving me such sweet nothing

[Bridge]
And it’s not enough to tell me that you care
When we both know the words are empty air
You give me nothing
Nothing

[Outro]
Sweet nothing
Sweet nothing
