Songfacts®:

  • Cage The Elephant hired The Kills' Alison Mosshart to sing the female perspective on this a tale of obsessive love. "We wanted to write a story about two people who were so in love that it was almost creepy," guitarist Brad Shultz told MusicRadar.com. "It was important to have a girl telling her part of the story, and because we've always been fans of Alison Mosshart, she was the one who came to mind to do the girl part of the duet. Luckily, we were able to snag her. [Laughs]"
  • Guitarist Lincoln Parish told Loudwire that Mosshart knocked out her part "in like 10 minutes."
