  • American multi-instrumentalist and singer songwriter St. Vincent (real name Annie Clark) told MTV News about this collaboration with Justin Vernon, the main man from indie folk band Bon Iver: "He sings in his beautiful falsetto and I'm actually singing very, very low. I think there's something vampirey and creepy about the two of us singing together. It's a simple, stripped-down kind of song. It's really elegant and beautiful."
  • Clark and Vernon had been talking about collaborating together for a while, and when Vernon wrote this song neither of them had any idea that this tune would end up on the soundtrack of the Twilight movie, New Moon. She explained: "We recorded the song for the joy of it, and then it looked like Twilight people were interested in using the song for the movie. So it pretty naturally happened."
  • Justin Vernon is a big fan of the 1990s TV drama Northern Exposure, which is about a New York doctor adjusting to life in a remote Alaskan community. This song was named after the Washington town where the series was filmed.
