Speaking to Rolling Stone about the song, Norton previously said, "People don't really know this, but Flea went back to USC and got his masters on music theory on trumpet, and his dad was a jazz musician and he is a deep aficionado of jazz. So Flea came in and played the most beautiful, simple lines that add that dimension. And then Thom took some of them and reversed them and put them through compressors so that it's playing backward and forward at the same time. It's really beautiful."
