In late 1967, Paul McCartney was approached by Cilla Black and her series producer Michael Hurll to write the theme song for her new TV series, “Cilla.” Paul initially recorded a demo version of “Step Inside Love” at his London home, featuring just one verse and the chorus.

On November 21, 1967, he joined Cilla Black at Chappell Recording Studios to begin the formal recording of the track. However, it was eventually decided that the song required an additional verse. The released version of the song was subsequently recorded on February 28, 1968.
