In a 2017 interview with Consequence Of Sound
, Wayne spoke about the making of the album and the oddity of this song title. "That was a fun and strange record to make," he said. "I think we started off thinking it was going to be a double album, so that we could stretch out. I think that was a great thing to happen for us at that time; when you think you're only doing 10 songs, you start thinking how they are going to be working together, and the greatest hits, or something ridiculous. When you think you're going to make a double record, you could just keep on being weird. For this album, we just started on any idea that we thought would give us more character or more color. And as we went, some of that worked, and some of it didn't, but when I see it now, songs titled with 'Sagittarius Silver Announcement' … well, what the f--k is that? I love it. Even that album cover. It made us deal with this feeling of detachment. It's not sexual, but there is something kind of menacing about that album title that's different from a normal Flaming Lips record. It's in a whole new realm."
