Farmer's Daughter

Album: Sequel To The Prequel (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • Lead guitarist Mick Whitnall told NME that he was delighted with vocalist Peter Doherty's contribution to this song: "When we recorded that I was so impressed and proud of Peter," he said. "I swear to God, he did about 15 takes back to back. He was really pushing it. He came out of the vocal booth and he was wet through, and he says, 'My ears are like two lamb cutlets!' cos he'd had the headphones on. But honestly, his voice! My missus – whose opinion I respect – she was like, 'Oh my god, it sounds like he can actually sing!'"
