  • The Justice duo wrote the entire song before enlisting vocalist M Yaman to sing it. Xavier de Rosnay recalled to Fact Magazine: "We wondered for a while, is it okay to make 'season' rhyme with 'reason'? Isn't it a bit, like, bad? Of course we tried other possibilities to see if we could make it better, but the simplicity is what was important to us, so we kept it that way."
  • The video was directed by Pascal Teixeira, who also conceived the artwork for Phoenix's Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix and Bankrupt! albums. The clip shows the French duo and Thelma & Louise actress Susan Sarandon taking a ride through the desert in a convertible. Teixeira said:

    "On a hot summer afternoon, Gaspard and I are in Xavier's kitchen, collectively daydreaming about washing a car. The year we like for car design, the make, where that could take place, how much soap, the mood, the sun, and there should be a woman to go cruising with, an iconic mix of cool, allure and strength – Susan Sarandon of course!

    "And then a couple months later we're in the desert, with the car and a lot of soap, and by some weird miracle there she is, even more amazing than we had fantasised her to be, ready to go for a drive."
