This is the opening track of Biffy Clyro's sixth album, Opposites. Frontman Simon Neil told NME: "It's a song of two halves and a nicely bipolar way to start a Biffy record."
Neil said to NME regarding the song's organ sound: "We recorded the church organ in Pasadena in the largest Baptist church in California. It was more powerful than any amplifier I've ever sat in front of. "
Opposites was recorded at Santa Monica's The Village studio, the same place where Glasvegas conceived their second album, Euphoric Heartbreak.
The chorus of "Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir" in "Lady Marmalade" is French for "Do you want to sleep with me tonight?" When Labelle performed it on television, they had to change it to "Voulez-vous danser avec moi ce soir" (Do you want to dance with me tonight?).
