Until Fox on the Run, Sweet was produced by the glam rock architects Mike Chapman and Nicky Chinn, who also wrote most of their songs, including all of their hits to this point. Fox On The Run was written by the band – Brian Connolly, Stephen Priest, Andrew Scott, Michael Tucker – and was included on their 1974 album Desolation Boulevard.
After the album was released, the band parted ways with Chapman and Chinn and produced their own material. Their first effort was a reworking of Fox On The Run, which was originally helmed by Chapman/Chinn.
