Escovedo trades lines with Bruce Springsteen on this tightly woven upbeat tune. The two rockers had previously teamed up in 2008 when Springsteen invited the Texan singer onstage for a joint performance of the Real Animal track "Always a Friend." Escovedo told Express Night Out about this collaboration: "'Faith' was the song that I wrote that I really thought would sum up the record in a way. Soon as I wrote it, I had heard that Bruce might be interested in singing on it. So it seemed like a perfect song for him to sing, and I kind of wrote it with that in mind, in a way."
George Harrison's 1971 song "Bangla Desh" was the first major charity single. It was part of a concert held to bring relief to the people of Bangladesh, who were fighting for independence and suffering from a famine.
