This song about the fragility of life was written about a friend of Tunstall's, who suddenly died from pancreatic cancer aged only 34. Just before he died he'd gifted her a cut-glass vase. The irony hit home afterwards. "I was like, you absolute bastard!" she laughed. "The one thing I've got that you've given me is the most breakable thing I own."
This features a whistling contribution from American multi-instrumentalist Andrew Bird. Tunstall told The Sun: "I was over the moon he was up for getting involved. He came through town for a show and we grabbed him for an hour or two in the afternoon. I'd seen him play in New York a couple of years earlier and was blown away by his skill."
Geffen Records made history on June 27, 1994 when Aerosmith's "Head First" became the first major label song made available for exclusive digital download. Download speeds at the time were so slow it took around 75 minutes to download the track.
Who writes a song about a name they found in a phone book? That's just one of the everyday things these guys find to sing about. Anything in their field of vision or general scope of knowledge is fair game. If you cross paths with them, so are you.
