  • Lyrics
  • This samples part of Parliament's 1976 single "Do That Stuff."
  • This was Royksopp's first single from Junior, their first album for nearly four years.
  • Royksopp told RealMusic.Blog about this track: "It's a nice way of saying hello to our fans again. It's a positive, optimistic track with a twist of insanity - we feel that insanity and happiness are the perfect combination. If you're insane but happy, that's great!"
