In an interview with the BBC, Ronson explained several big names had tried writing something to fit his eighties-inspired synthpop track, but "nothing felt right" until the vocalist that fronts electro duo MNDR came up with her version.
"When the song was over, there was this silence and I asked, 'What are you saying in the chorus?' She explained it means, 'I will pluck the feathers out of your head'. At the end of the day it's bit of a bratty taunt."
Ronson is now a big fan of the precocious Warner. "She's super-smart and really geeky, and she builds her own keyboards," he says. Smarter than some pop fans, it would seem. On Twitter, a listener mistook the line "Je te plumerai la..." for "Shake your vuvuzela."
Coincidentally, the single is released on Monday, July 12, just a day after the World Cup final, which amuses Ronson. "If I was super-smart, like one of those marketing geniuses like Will.i.am or Puffy, I would have had a vuvuzela remix," he says ruefully.
