McCartney discussed the song during an interview with Taylor Swift for Rolling Stone magazine:
McCartney: Sometimes I’ll just be inspired by something. I had a little book which was all about the constellations and the stars and the orbits of Venus and…
Swift: Oh, I know that song – ‘The Kiss of Venus’?
McCartney: Yeah, ‘The Kiss of Venus’. And I just thought, “That’s a nice phrase.” So I was actually just taking phrases out of the book, harmonic sounds. And the book is talking about the maths of the universe, and how when things orbit around each other, and if you trace all the patterns, it becomes like a lotus flower.
McCartney: It’s very magical.
