  • This '90s throwback Dance tune finds Kele partnering with vocalist Bobbie Gordon. The Bloc Party frontman commented: "Both Bobbie and I love the music from the mid-90s, so we wanted to make something that had a break-beat vibe. Bobbie's voice is totally unique-sounding; it's playful and soulful at the same time. She has a very unique quality to her voice but is a versatile singer as well."
  • The vinyl record was billed as the world's first to be printed using 3D technology.
  • The song was a charity single with proceeds going to Nordoff Robins, which specializes in music therapy.
