The first single and title track from electro pop duo 3OH!3's fourth studio album finds the pair hitting hard on their rapping roots. They told Cliché magazine why they chose this as the record's lead track: "I think it was cool for us because it was a song that was kind of like a throwback song for us. It's a little bit harder and rappier, kind of reminiscent of our older styles. Um, and so we knew we were gonna do Warped Tour, where I think there's a lot of our older fans, who have been listening to us since those days so it kind of made sense to release that song, and kind of gear it really especially for fans, you know, it's kind of cool to do stuff directly for fans and it's what we wanted to do."
A teaser of "Robot" was posted on June 21, 2011 and was released on iTunes a week later on June 28, 2011.
