Parker originally intended to give the song to Mark Ronson for his Uptown Special
album - before reconsidering. The Tame Impala frontman got his chance to inform Ronson of his change of plan when he was in America recording with the producer. However, he kept putting off telling him, until finally mustering up the strength.
Parker told GQ Australia
that Ronson responded, "Oh yeah, dude, I was going to say this song is yours. I feel like I've stolen your hard drive!"
The Anglo-American producer was thinking the same thing, anyway.
