Songfacts®:

  • Following the release of Royksopp's final album The Inevitable End in 2014, the duo said they would carry on making one-off songs when appropriate. This slice of electronica is their first new track since the announcement. Royksopp's Svein Berge said: "The track has its own cosmos and its own place. The whole idea of us going away from the whole album concept was that we do have many musical expressions that we want to do."
  • The song features Norwegian singer-songwriter Susanne Sundfør, who previously sang on The Inevitable End tracks "Running To The Sea" and "Save Me" as well as Royksopp's cover of Depeche Mode's "Ice Machine" from their Late Night Tales compilation.
