The single had world wide release on iTunes on 18 March 2014.

Background[edit]

The song was proposed to Alizée by Pascal Obispo after their earlier conversation about Alizée telling that she would like to bleach her hair. Pascal told her that he would have a song to match those hair if she'd be interested. Alizée went and bleached her hair and the single was released.[3]
