  • This is one of three collaborations with former Zero 7 member Sia Furler for Bionic. The Australian singer/songwriter told Spin magazine about working with Aguilera: "She's crazy dope amazing. She's a perfectionist and she totally scrambled my mind. When we were doing the vocal production, every take was sick. Then she'd ask, 'What do you think of these five takes?' I'd be like, 'Well, every single one of them is perfect and I have no idea what you're talking about if you think one of them is not perfect.' She's a mad scientist of singing."
  • Aguilera said in a video interview that she reached out to Sia, "who I was a big fan of working with because of her work with Zero 7, which I'm a huge fan of."
