Ville Valo told us how this song came together. "We just wanted to copy the main vibe of The Cult and The Mission," he said. "We had the idea for the song, and then it sounded really mediocre. We played the idea to Tim Palmer, the producer. We were recording in Silverlake in Los Angeles, and we rented this beautiful old mansion called Paramour.
