Written by Little Boots and Joe Goddard, the song was released as a limited-edition promotional single in the United Kingdom on 4 August 2008.[1]

Critical reception[edit]

"Meddle" received generally positive reviews from music critics. In a review for musicOMH, John Murphy called the song "squealy electro goodness" that had "a terrific bit near the end where the backing vocals seem to turn into Gregorian chants before kicking back into the disco beat."[2] Neil Queen of The Times described it as a "barnstormer" that comes "across like a brain-stabbing disco/drum and bass hybrid."[3]
