This bouncy tune is a track from Wreckorder, the debut solo album by Travis lead singer Fran Healy. The song is a duet with alternative country singer Neko Case. Healy explained to American songwriter how he hooked up with Case: "I met her at a gig in Berlin, which is where I live, and after the show I went and said 'thanks for the show, you're brilliant,' I found myself asking her if she would be interested in a duet with me. While I'm' in the midst of saying this, my brain is going, 'Why'd you say that?!? Don't ask her that!!'
And I found myself speaking before my brain would allow me. But she was really sweet. She said, 'What a great idea, I'd love to do that.' And then I realized I didn't have a song, so I had to go and write a song. So I went home and wrote this song, 'Sing Me To Sleep,' and then we went to Vermont, which is where she's based, and we set up a little portable studio, just a microphone and a laptop, and we opened Pro Tools. She sang like a bird. She's amazing. She's so gracious and she looked after us. We were very well looked after."
