This is one of several songs on Trouble Will Find Me
where the band worked with indie-folk singer-songwriter Sufjan Stevens. Drummer Bryan Devendorf told the Gothamist
: "There are some drum machines provided by Sufjan Stevens - he did some other things too, but he had this drum machine and he did some cool little parts on that."
He continued: "It's [drum machine] on a bunch [of songs], it's definitely on 'Demons', there's some subtle stuff on 'Pink Rabbits
', and definitely on 'I Need My Girl
'. But it's not like Daft Punk or anything."
