Songfacts®:

  • This is the first single released by The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, a duo consisting of Sean Lennon and his girlfriend, the model turned musician Charlotte Kemp-Muhl. Amy Winehouse producer Mark Ronson helped out on bass and production. Bet you didn't know Ronson is the stepson of Mick Jones from Foreigner.
  • Kemp-Muhl told Spinner: "A lot of our song titles will originate from an old poem that I wrote and then [Sean] and I will flesh out the lyrics. ['Jardin'] was representative of where we were, having fun in the studio and jamming with Mark."
  • The B-side is a cover version of Serge Gainsbourg's "Comic Strip," featuring French singer-songwriter Matthieu Chedid.
