Lennon wrote this in 1983 at a French chateau called the Manor de Valotte, which is how the song got its title (the word "Valotte" does not appear in the lyrics). In our interview with Julian, he told the story: "The place where that was written, which was actually a beautiful little run-down chateau in the middle of France, which is where the label at the time decided was a good place to send their artists to work out their writing skills. It's as simple as that, really. The album was dedicated to "My mother Cynthia and to my Father. Julian is John Lennon's first son. His mother is Cynthia Lennon, who John was married to before Yoko (they had a son named Sean). Julian sounds a lot like his dad, and a lot of people were surprised to learn it was not a John Lennon song when they first heard it. This was Julian's first single in the US and his second in the UK.
