Album: Koi No Yokan (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • This was the first track released from Deftones's seventh studio album, Koi No Yokan. The record was recorded in Los Angeles with Nick Raskulinecz (Alice In Chains, Foo Fighters, Rush) who also produced the band's previous set, Diamond Eyes. "We'd taken so much time between records, had some inner turmoil and our records were starting to get pieced together versus really being created together, so for us it was a chance to get back to basics," vocalist Chino Moreno told Noisecreep. "We didn't have an idea of what sort of style we wanted. We just came in fired up and motivated to do something great. It was all very positive. We had more songs than ever, tons of ideas."
  • The song was offered as a limited-time free download exclusively via deftones.com.
  • The album title, Koi No Yokan, is a Japanese phrase meaning a love at first sight that is one's destiny, even though the object of the affections remains unknown.
