Songfacts®:

  • Indigo Girls hooked up with a new producer, Nashville multi-instrumentalist Jordan Brooke Hamlin, for their One Lost Day album. This was the first song to carry what would become the Hamlin stamp on the record. "When I made a demo of 'Fishtails,' I accidentally shifted the pitch and tempo, which also provided some insight into how I wanted to approach it," Indigo Girls Amy Ray told Billboard magazine. "Jordan came back with this soundscape around the song that evoked all of the emotion of the words and really showed her vision and the production skills she had to pursue it. For me, this was the shoo-in and assured me we were on the right path in using her as a producer."
