Phantogram’s “You Don’t Get Me High Anymore” is a towering pop song, much larger than anything the duo had done previously to their new album, Three, which comes out tomorrow. For the latest episode of the Song Exploder podcast, Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter break down exactly how the song was constructed: They start out by taking apart each part of the beat, then Barthel explains how she added melodies to Carter’s initial idea and eventually came up with the lyrics. They also talk about how The-Dream and co-producer Ricky Reed helped shape how the song came together. Listen to to the full episode below.
Three is out 10/7
