Angel Olsen surprised herself when the first two songs she wrote for My Woman
were the somber synth-based "Intern
" and this solo piano ballad, which was based on an instrumental she recorded as an experiment. The two keyboard tracks bookend the album. "Suddenly I was wondering, 'Is this gonna be the record?'" Olsen recalled to Mojo
. "Me on synth and piano? Will it sound like Tori Amos?"
