Meddle

Songfacts®:

  • 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."
