Songfacts®:

  • This skit features French musician and producer SebastiAn recalling how a past relationship went awry due to accusations of infidelity over Facebook.
  • SebastiAn has worked with a variety of different acts including collaborating with Fall Out Boy on the title track of their American Beauty/American Psycho album. He "programmed" three songs on Ocean's Endless album - "Slide on Me" "Rushes" and "Higgs."
  • SebastiAn told Pitchfork the story behind the song. "We were just chatting about life and relationships in general. I discovered that Frank was recording the conversations sometimes when something seemed interesting to him, but I didn't know when and why exactly. We were just having discussions like anyone else, but he suddenly paid attention at this story. He maybe chose that one because this kind of story reveals something about our time. He maybe has another point of view."
