  • This song features Clapton's former flame Sheryl Crow on shared lead vocals. The pair had a brief affair in the late 1990s, and it is rumored she wrote her song "My Favorite Mistake" about him. Clapton previously guested with the American singer at 1999's Sheryl Crow And Friends: Live From Central Park concert and the 2007 Crossroads Guitar Festival.
  • Texan guitarist and member of Clapton's band Doyle Bramhall II wrote the song with former Mark Ronson/Beck collaborator Justin Stanley and his wife US R&B singer-songwriter Nikka Costa.
