: "I just wanted to use all this sort of masculine bravado and sexual boasting, almost like one of those old-fashioned kind of hip-hop records, like bigging yourself up, but it's Putin.
And then there's this middle section that goes all soft and psychedelic, which is this kind of section where he's become so masculine that he just needs a break from it, and he just wants to hug another man [laughs]. And I kind of just wanted to make this, I don't know, it was just my imagination on the Trans Siberian Express, my brain eating itself [laughs]."
