Songfacts®:

  • A video for this song featuring children dancing in Aphex Twin masks was released on June 21, 2016. The clip was Aphex Twin's first since the Chris Cunningham-directed visual for "Windowlicker" in 1999.
  • The clip was directed by a 12 year-old named Ryan Wyer who lives in Rush County, Dublin. Aphex chose the Dublin schoolboy after being impressed by videos on Wyer's YouTube channel, Epic Gaming. These included his own mini films of Aphex's songs "Spectogram" and "Run The Place Red."
  • The artwork for the Cheetah EP pays tribute to Cheetah Sweet Talker, a speech synthesizer released for the ZX Spectrum home computer back in 1983.
