This techno track features a spoken-word contribution from whistleblower Edward Snowden
, whose revelations about surveillance carried out by the US National Security Agency were published in the Guardian
. Jean-Michel Jarre asked the UK newspaper to put him in touch with America's most wanted man and a meeting was set up in Moscow through Snowden's solicitor, where the recordings took place.
"I had no idea if he would be interested," Jarre said of his contact with Snowden, "but he loved the idea, thought Edward would love the idea and put us in contact. I sent him a demo of the music, then had a meeting with Edward over Skype, 90 minutes of conversation, where I gave him the understanding of what I wanted to do, we talked about his situation, the reason why he did what he did, then we recorded his vocals."
