"Strip That Down" is Payne's first single from his forthcoming debut album. The track was co-written with Ed Sheeran. During an interview with Morning Mash Up on SiriusXM Hits 1, Payne explained how Sheeran ended up collaborating with him.
"I got a call and they were like, 'Ed Sheeran is in the studio and he's writing this song, and it's about you, it's for you. So come down and have a listen,'" the singer recalled. "I mean, it's great when you get to collaborate with people like Ed Sheeran."
