Songfacts®:

  • This song features guest vocalist Laura Mvula. Cullum told HMV.com: "Laura Mvula was someone I have very much supported on my radio show, apart from which I am huge fan of her singular songwriting and her exquisite and unique voice. I hadn't heard her sing any jazz before and I really wanted to hear her in this context."
  • This Irene Higginbotham, Ervin Drake, and Dan Fisher-penned song was originally recorded by Billie Holiday on January 22, 1946. It was revived by Diana Ross, when she portrayed Holiday in the 1972 biopic Lady Sings the Blues. Released as a single later on that year to promote the movie, it peaked at #34 on the Billboard Hot 100.
