This song is a collaboration by Graham Coxon with former Coral guitarist Bill Ryder-Jones and singer-songwriter Paloma Faith. The Blur guitarist told NME: "It's kinda tripped out voodoo sort of London town thing. I've always liked the idea of me actually writing songs and girls singing them, and I'd seen Paloma on TV before and thought, 'Wow man, she's crackers!' And I was always a fan of The Coral - I used to watch them live. Bill's a very good guitarist."
The song was commissioned by the Converse shoe company, and was made available to download from Converse.co.uk on April 5, 2011.
