In a long promo interview in September 2007, Dave Gahan was asked about every song off 'Hourglass' including this one:

"That came about from a backing track that Andrew was working on, and to me it was like a it just had this very sort of dark feel about it and really aggressive and sort of filthy nasty rhythm track that they had put together, and I just had written these words, you know I think I was particularly pissed off on that day, and I decided to put it into the song and you know it's a song that's really sexually aggressive, and about wanting it, wanting to have things my way, you know to be in control, and that song was very much about performance. It came together really quickly, we completed it quite quickly and I had put this stuff on there, Christian and I arranged it in a certain way and Andrew was very keen for me to write another part which would be like a C part, which would take the song somewhere else and I never heard that, or I didn't hear it being like that. So, you know it became a thing throughout the first six weeks of like you know we've got to come up with another part, we've got to come up with another part, so that the song is more of a developed song in a traditional form. But it wasn't about that, it was about an atmosphere, I never did it."

He also said in the press release for 'Hourglass':

"It is very sexual and very animal. But that's a big part of me, too; and I wanted to expose that. I started singing it, and Christian said I would have to stand three feet from the mic — I was just screaming it out. I wanted it to have that feel of T. Rex, Gary Glitter, all those glam bands. But it's really kind of a blues thing, just riffing on one idea."
