Talks between Franz Ferdinand and Sparks
regarding a collaboration first happened around the time the Scottish band released their breakthrough 2004 single "Take Me Out
." However, it wasn't until 2014 that the two acts actually got round to recording some tracks together. "We approached it the way bands do with their first record," Franz Ferdinand's Alex Kapranos said. "We had the songs first, rehearsed them and then recorded it all together, in a room. So no hanging around or fannying about."
This was the first song written by the two acts and it is the closing track on their eponymous album.
