In an interview with Apple Music’s radio host, Zane Lowe, Savage discusses naming the song after a Nigerian program. “Tales By Moonlight was a popular program when I was growing up in Nigeria,” said the Grammy-nominated songwriter. The show was set in a village and featured an adult who would read old folk stories and fairytales to a group of young children.
“I wanted a record that felt good. The lyrics, even my delivery on it, my tone, I was very soft on it. It’s me saying I just want that fairy tale type of love. I don’t want to lose hope in just finding real love. I still believe in that. No matter how many times I’ve been heartbroken, I still am a sucker for love. I still believe there’s still that fairytale Cinderella ending.”
