“Supernature” is title track of French disco drummer, composer, record producer Cerrone’s 1977 album “Supernature (Cerrone III)”. “Supernature” has a sci-fi theme: it’s about the rebellion of mutant creatures — created by scientists to end starvation among mankind — against the humans. It also featured “Sweet Drums”, a three-minute-and-ten-second drum breakdown. The single crossed over to both the pop charts, where it peaked at #70, and the soul charts, where it peaked at #72. The lyrics were written by a young Lene Lovich, though she was not credited.

“Supernature” is one of Cerrone’s best known tracks. It was re-released in 1986 and remixed by David Ford. The song was also covered by Erasure in 1989 as a b-side track for the single “You Surround Me”.
