According to vocalist Alice Glass, the song "is about human taxidermy, the idea of preserving the beauty of a lover the way you would an animal".

"Courtship Dating" was received positively by critics, with NME describing it as "synth-pop filled up with muted screams, jerking bass and sparking circuit boards" and "the best piece of humanity-loathing cyborg pop since The Knife's Silent Shout".

It was released on Play It Again Sam Records on July 21, 2008, despite the fact that the release was supposed to be canceled.

The band did not want to release the song as a single and did not approve of the track listing or the artwork.

Crystal Castles are an experimental electronic band formed in 2003 in Toronto, Ontario by songwriter/producer Ethan Kath.

Crystal Castles are known for their chaotic live shows and lo-fi melancholic homemade productions.

They released many limited vinyl singles between 20 before releasing a trilogy of critically acclaimed albums between 20.

"Tell Me What to Swallow" beat demo was a rejected remix by a French producer, not produced by Ethan Kath, but somehow the song appeared on the release.

The vocals are sampled from the track "Sex City" from Van She.
