The song features contributions from both James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem, who sings the hook, and Andre 3000 of Outkast, who takes over the second half of the track with a rapid-fire rap verse. It was Murphy's first contribution since the disbanding of LCD in April 2011. "We didn't exchange any ideas at all [beforehand]," he recalled to Billboard magazine. "Damon was basically saying, 'Let's just get in a room,' which, even if it wasn't Damon Albarn, is a pretty convincing argument, really. To be honest, I was worried that I should prepare something, but went with it anyway."
