Release[edit]

In July 2010 DJ Kissy Sell Out premiered a remix of "Difficult", titled the Kissy Klub Version, on his BBC Radio 1 show and made the track available to download for free from his blog.[2]

On August 11, 2010 Ed Banger Records confirmed through their Facebook page that Uffie's next single to be released would be "Difficult", produced by SebastiAn.[3] It was then announced that "Difficult" would be released as an EP on October 18, 2010 through Ed Banger Records, Elektra Records and Because Music, containing remixes from SebastiAn and Azari & III.[1]

The remix provided by SebastiAn titled "2006 Parties Remix", reached number 1 on The Hype Machine the day of being released.[4]

Uffie announced through her official blog that a music video for "Difficult" would begin shooting on September 9, 2010.[5] The music video was later confirmed to be directed by French filmmakers AB/CD/CD and was released on October 6, 2010.[1]

The song contains a sample from "Love of the Hurtin' Kind" by Claudja Barry.

Music video[edit]

The video, directed by AB/CD/CD, features Uffie walking through a school hallway, as each door leads her to the same but alternately changed hallways. By the end of the video Uffie finds herself trapped behind the doors.
