I recorded Ableton's click on my iPhone and then put a bunch of different [effects] on it.”

Lastly Göransson revealed on “Telegraph Ave,” Childish Gambino recorded the melody on his iPhone saying: “That vocal line gave it a very [indie] vibe, which was interesting, because the other sounds I use in the chorus are a bit more commercial and 2013 production sounding,”
