Franz Ferdinand vocalist Alex Kapranos explained the song's meaning to NME: "It's about searching for an answer, whether it's religion, or a belief system, or just somebody to admire."
Veronica Falls vocalist Roxanne Clifford sings on this track. Clifford's face can be seen on the single cover for Franz Ferdinand's "Do You Want To."
This was released on April 7, 2014 as the fifth single from Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action. The B-side, "Erdbeer Mund," is sung by Kapranos entirely in German. Its title translates to "Strawberry Mouth."
