Songfacts®:

  • Jet's first new music since they announced their split in 2012, this rock/EDM hybrid is a collaboration with Italian electronic group The Bloody Beetroots.
  • The track comes in two versions: one is an EDM rendition and features Jet frontman Nic Cester, while the other is more classic rock, and includes all of the Australian outfit.

    "I knew this song needed a certain rock tone…a tone like Nic Cester of Jet had. We thought instead of someone 'like Nic Cester,' how about we get the real Nic Cester!" said The Bloody Beetroots mainman Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo. "We worked together, ate together, drank together and created something very powerful together."

    "Around this time the Jet guys started talking and thinking about getting back together, when Nic shared this with his bandmates, the idea came up to have ALL of Jet involved," he continued. "Because of our different influences, we had different ideas on the mixing and from that, we came up with two versions. It's the best of both our worlds!"
