This song was produced by Hot Chip's Joe Goddard after he was handed a demo tape of "Stuck on Repeat." Goddard told Digital Spy the song "started off as a rock track, but I basically did a Timbaland rip-off and sent it back."
Little Boots plays on this track the Tenori-on, a Japanese gadget, which has become her trademark instrument. She explained to The Sun May 29, 2009: "I saw a Tenori-on in the studio and picked it up. I think it's great and when you can play that live you can see the sound. I think it's important to bring the physicality back, to see the beamed light, which is also a sound. See the pattern being made as you hear it."
The Four Tops' "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)" was written by the Motown team of Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland and Eddie Holland. The phrase "Sugar pie, honey bunch" was something Dozier's grandfather used to say when he was a kid.
