  • The song features the voice of the French actress Clémence Poésy, who is best known for playing Fleur Delacour in the Harry Potter movies. "I wanted to do a really sexy duet," he explained to The Independent. "That Gainsbourg and Bardot thing or Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra, I've always been a massive fan of those sorts of songs and I've been listening to a lot of that stuff over the last couple of years."
