When writing this song, Jake Bugg tried something he used to do as a child: look at pictures and write stories inspired by them. "It was creating a story but as a painting. I was being one of those arty hipsters, I guess," he told The Independent. "Sometimes I have a character, sometimes it'll be more personal. Other times I won't really think about it until after the song, and then you look at it in a different way."
The chorus of "Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir" in "Lady Marmalade" is French for "Do you want to sleep with me tonight?" When Labelle performed it on television, they had to change it to "Voulez-vous danser avec moi ce soir" (Do you want to dance with me tonight?).
