It was almost too good to be true: eleven years after 'Now & forever', Kim Wilde was releasing her tenth studio album 'Never say never'. A month ahead of the album, on August 18, 2006, the new single 'You came (2006)' was released. It was a remake of the 1988 hit single, featuring more guitars and an updated sound for the 21st century. The song was produced by Uwe Fahrenkrog-Petersen, who started working with Kim as a result of the very successful duet with Nena, 'Anyplace anywhere anytime', that gave them a number one hit in Austria and the Netherlands.

'You came (2006)' was released all over Europe, featuring an 'Oldschool remix' and a 'Groovenut remix' on the cd-single. Two further remixes, the 'Tron remix' and the 'Oki remix' appeared some weeks later as a digital download. In Greece, a promotional dvd featuring two versions of the video was released. 'You came (2006)' became Kim's most successful solo single in the 21st century, reaching top 30 positions in eight different countries.
