"The Purple Bottle" is the second single from Animal Collective's 2005 album, Feels. The "Stevie Wonder" mix of the title song features a verse taken from Stevie Wonder's song "I Just Called to Say I Love You," which can be heard best after the 2:30 mark. This was intended to be the album version, but copyright issues prevented its release as such. Consequently, the single was only released in a white label vinyl format, with 500 copies printed. Before the release of Feels The Purple Bottle was known as "Big Big Beat" among the band and on set-lists. The B-side "Polly" is from a live BBC Radio 1 "Breezeblock Session" on 2004/04/26.
