According to the Brian Eno Songfacts, this ode to legendary producer Brian Eno was one of several tracks recorded in MGMT's Andrew VanWyngarden's Brooklyn apartment. He told Spin Magazine: "It started with just us messing around; we never took it seriously as a song. Then on the second day we had the home studio working. At 1:30 A.M. we did a live take and that's what ended up being the foundation for the song."

So tired, soul searching
I followed the sounds to a cathedral
Imagine my surprise to find that
They were produced by Brian Eno
