This slow Country ballad was penned by Nettles
whilst in the later stages of her pregnancy with her son, Magnus. The singer explained to Radio.com
that she was sent a photograph and was asked to use it as inspiration for a song as part of a collection of related projects. "My friend Sally Taylor is doing an art project called Consenses. It is an artistic version of the game telephone where you all sit in a circle and there's one message and it gets passed around and you see if it remotely resembles to the original message," she explained. "She's doing that with art and all across different mediums. She started with a photograph. The photograph was sent to a songwriter, which is me, and then the song goes to the painter and the painter only listens to the song."
Nettles added that the experience made her focus away from what she wanted to say and instead recount the story that the photograph was telling.
