Flying Lotus told Rolling Stone that he had a dream about collaborating with his "astral brother," Thom Yorke. This vision came true when the Radiohead frontman sang on the glitchy electronic beat producer's "…And The World Laughs With You." The dream in question involved Lotus witnessing a murder before deciding he needed a beer. "I go into Trader Joe's [supermarket] and Thom Yorke's in there, like, 'Hey, let's have a beer and a catch up,'" he said. "I woke up from that to the e-mail saying he'd like me to join them on the tour. I wish I'd made it up. I have weird stuff like that happen to me all the time."
Adele included this song, which she wrote with veteran songwriter and producer Ryan Tedder, on her second album, 21. The singer admits that the tune was her own way of responding to people in her inner circle who fell prey to the stories and lies that began to circulate about her all over the media when she became a household name. “People might think it's about blogs and magazines and papers, but it's not,” she said. “It's about my own friends believing stuff that they hear about me, which is pretty mortifying, really.”
