This the opening track of Band of Horses' Why Are You Okay album. Vocalist Ben Bridwell told The Sun the story of the song: "I like to haphazardly de-tune guitars and see what textures arise," he said. "With that one, I tuned a cigar box guitar into a pleasant sounding chord. It seemed to set a vivid scene with its simplicity and I followed it on from there."
At seven minutes, this is the longest song the band has ever put to tape. Bridwell explained to The Sun: "When setting up a recording,. I usually have a stop on act for at 4 minutes 20 seconds because I'm an idiot. Most of these songs, I deliberately pushed the lengths in hope of finding more content are I could use later for better overall material."
It has long been speculated that the Soundgarden song "Black Hole Sun" came from the name of a sculpture in Seattle, but according to their frontman Chris Cornell the title came from a phrase he misheard on the news. The band's name did come from a sculpture.
