About this song

According to the Under Cover of Darkness Songfacts, Julian Casablancas admitted that Clarence Clemons' 1985 duet with Jackson Browne, You're A Friend Of Mine was an inspiration for this song. Said the singer: "I weirdly like the bridge and the chorus of that Clarence Clemons song. So that was the vibe we were going for" He then sheepishly added, "I shouldn't confess to these things!"
