It is an "airy, slow and personally deep" song, which was created after a friend asked Cara to write a song about "somebody falling out of love with you". It was serviced to contemporary hit radio on January 29, 2019, six days after Cara unveiled its artwork.
According to Beth Bowles of Exclaim!, "Out of Love" sees the singer "demand our attention as she shows off her her vocal range, her voice smooth and rich as honey". NME's Nick Levine called the song a "big, sad ballad".
