Songfacts®:

  • This song features Q-Tip rhyming over The Chemical Brothers' retro instrumentation. The former A Tribe Called Quest rapper previously teamed up with the UK dance duo for their hit 2005 single, "Galvanize."
  • The human locomotive-themed video was shot by Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind director Michel Gondry. He previously helmed the clips for the Chemical Brothers' "Star Guitar" and "Let Forever Be," and several videos for Bjork, including her debut, "Human Behaviour."
  • Tom Rowlands recalled to Q magazine: "I went to Q-Tip's house in New Jersey to do 'Go.' It's brilliant, proper teenage b-boy fantasy stuff. He's got an incredible studio in the basement with special sub-bass in every corner, and the most amazing vinyl collection -four copies of obscure Krautrock records, stuff like that. Then we ordered jerk chicken. I was in awe."
  • This was used in a popular commercial for the 2018 GMC Terrain.
