This is the title track of The Last Shadow Puppets' second album. The song finds Alex Turner and Miles Kane musing about an alluring woman through a mixture of benign, sinister and dreamy metaphors.

During an interview with Spin, the comment was made that the lyrics on Everything You've Come To Expect are more lighthearted and carefree compared with their debut release. Alex Turner responded. "When we did the first record, we considered the lyrics another component along with the melody. [This time] I wasn't so concerned about always telling a story."
The video was shot on steadycam by Saam Farahmand on location on the Malibu beach. It features dancer Michelle Dawley Eliot frolicking with The Last Shadow Puppets pair.
The "collar on a diamond dog" lyric is a nod to David Bowie. Alex Turner told Interview magazine: "We've always talked about his being an influence. Even when we did the record eight years ago, we did a cover of one of his early songs called 'In the Heat of the Morning.' So he's always been there."
His keyboard work helped define the Muscle Shoals sound and make him an integral part of many Neil Young recordings. Spooner is also an accomplished songwriter, whose hits include "I'm Your Puppet" and "Cry Like A Baby."
