Frontman Antony Hegarty duets with the Icelandic singer Björk on this tender ballad. Hegarty explained to Billboard magazine how the song came together: "We recorded the song in Jamaica at the same time we recorded the Volta stuff. She rented a big piano, came in and improvised some vocals, and I stayed up all night and edited them into a structure. It's exciting to watch her in the studio, because she's uninhibited when she's in her environment. Also, singing next to her live is really challenging, because she's such an expansive singer, and I always felt like I was just trying to keep up."
This song finds Björk repaying Hegarty for his contributions to her Volta album. He provided vocals to two tracks, "The Dull Flame of Desire" and "My Juvenile."
