The song is a part of the upcoming album trilogy "Uno!", "Dos!" and "Tre!" which will be released in the United States on September 25, November 13 and January 15 respectively. According to Billie Joe, the song is straight-up dance music and has a four-on-the-floor type of rhythm. He said that he had never done it before and compared it to Ian Dury's "Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll" and Tom Tom Club's "Genius of Love".
