Amanda Lear wrote "Red Tape"'s lyrics and Anthony Monn composed the music. The song is a mixture of pop, rock and New wave music. Like all the other tracks on Incognito, "Red Tape" refers to a sin - bureaucracy. The single was released only in France, but failed to reach the charts. "New York" was released as the B-side of the single.
