Songfacts®:

  • Robyn teamed up with Royksopp for this track. Its not the first time the Swedish electro-pop singer has worked with the Norwegian electronic music duo. Their previous collaborations include "the Girl and the Robot" from Royksopp's 2009 album, Junior.
  • On this song, Robyn is proclaiming she's just really bored. Its one of several songs on Body Talk Pt. 1 that were inspired by Robyn's "juvenile" state of mind and her outsider perspective. She explained to Pop Justice: "I'm always going to be writing about those issues, it's what I'm fascinated by but I also think there's something about the state of mind you find yourself in a lot when you're younger, and you just want to get out of somewhere. You just want to do something. Feel things!"
