Sugaring Season, Beth Orton's first album in six years and her Anti- Records debut, was recorded in Portland, Oregon, with producer Tucker Martine (My Morning Jacket, The Decemberists). Orton penned this song with Portland singer-songwriter M. Ward. She sings of a senior citizen who has lived through much, passing on wisdom. "I learned to turn what could be sorrow," she croons, "into some kind of mercy."
"Here Comes Your Man" is the closest the Pixies came to a hit in America. It was rumored to be about a drug dealer, but Black Francis says it's just a story about some hobos who travel by train and die in an earthquake.
