"Flicker" is the result of me throwing arbitrary phrases through Google Translate. It started as a joke but then turned into something kinda beautiful.

–Porter Robinson[1]

"Flicker" is the fourth track from Porter Robinson's debut studio album, Worlds. It was released as the album's fourth and final single on July 29, 2014.

BackgroundEdit

In the Spotify commentary of Worlds, Robinson described the origins of the song: "When I first wrote 'Flicker', it wasn't meant to be a Worlds song, but, um, I had an MP3 or a WAV file sitting on my desktop of... I had to use a text-to-speech program, basically, I took a bunch of song titles and translated them into Japanese, you know, not correctly at all, just using an online translation tool. And then I used text-to-speech on it and just made this little robot voice say all these song titles in Japanese of songs ... that would never be seen, and then I chopped it up into a rap, and that's where you get the 'watashi wa' little hook from, and ... I thought it was a little charming thing. And then, after I'd written ... that piece, I went into the next section with the lead melody and the different chord progression and...you know, to me, 'Flicker' is one of the songs that has a structure that goes to a lot of different places, and it's not meant to be, um, a pop song - it's more of a little journey."[2]

Robinson announced the song's release date on July 14, 2014.[3]
