Til He's Dead or Rising

Album: English Oceans (2014)
  • This marked the first time where DBT guitarist Mike Cooley took singing duties on a song written by Patterson Hood. Colley recalled: "I remember Patterson was getting frustrated trying to sing it. He was doing fine, but it seemed like there was something he wanted to do that wasn't coming. I was in the control room thinking, 'I could probably sing this' - though it wasn't like I was saying, 'Oh, I can sing this a lot better than that.' I was thinking, 'This sounds like something I could sing.'"

    "Right after that, he walks into the control room and says, 'You want to trying singing this? It sounds more like you than me.' I said, 'Yeah, I was just thinking that.'"
