This is an ode to a baby elephant that Albarn met in a place called Mkomazi, in Tanzania. He recalled to Rolling Stone: "It was recently orphaned and walked onto this aerodrome; the people I know took it in and called it Mr. Tembo. I was there, and I met this little elephant, and he was very sweet. I sang it to him. It was recorded on a phone, and in a lighthearted moment, I put it on a list for Richard (Russell, co-producer). He said, 'I'd really like you to try that,' so I did."
Asked how the elephant reacted to the track, Albarn replied: "To be honest to you, when I sang it to the elephant, it s--t itself. Because it was on milk, it was white elephant baby poo, if you can imagine that. It's quite something at close vicinity."
