This is a bonus track on Tame Impala's Collector's Edition box set of their 2015 album Currents. Frontman Kevin Parker explained on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 show that he started writing the song between the end of 2012's Lonerism and the start of the sessions for Currents.
"I guess maybe one of the reasons it didn't end up on the album [Currents] was that it was started on so early and I was so over it by the time I was finishing the album," he said. "But by the time I got to finish [the track], I was really kind of like satisfied with it as a song and as a chunk of my creativity and emotion and stuff."
