This is the closing theme song to the NetFlix cartoon series BoJack Horseman. Grouplove frontman Christian Zucconi wrote the track for the TV show. He said: "The creators of the show brought me to the animation studios where I watched a teaser that began to unveil the complex character of BoJack. Pretty sure he is every artist's worst nightmare, but regardless I find myself rooting for him."
"It was fun to write a song for BoJack," Zucconi added, "because it needed to combine the highs and lows that come with life but still be catchy as hell."
The song you hear playing in BoJack Horseman is essentially the original demo that Grouplove recorded. "We mixed it a little bit, but they didn't want a clean, spruced-up version," Zucconi recalled to ABC Audio. "They were, like, 'We like this.'"
"Abracadabra" was inspired by Diana Ross and The Supremes. Steve Miller first met the girl group when they performed together on NBC's Hullabaloo in 1966, and he wrote the lyrics after spotting Diana Ross skiing in the mountains years later.
