The song is from Chromeo's fourth studio album, White Women
. The pair chose the title for the record as it's the name of photographer Helmut Newton's first book. Dave 1 explained to HMV.com
: "As you know, he's always been a big influence on us, visually, with the legs and all, our album artwork and such."
"I was at his retrospective in Paris a couple of years ago and they had the titles of all his publications on the wall," he continued. "White Women
struck me. I called P and said: 'wouldn't that make a great title for a Bowie album? Or a Roxy Music album?…Why don't we use it?' After a bit of deliberation, we went with it. We knew it'd come as a bit of a shock, but we like it. It sparks conversation."
