My Precious

Album: Stanley Climbfall (2002)

Songfacts®:

  • Lead singer Jason Wade: "This is my favorite song on the record. We were working on 'Spin,' and I just went in the other room and wrote it. Ron (their producer) heard me playing it and said 'Let's record it.' We recorded it right after I wrote it. The band had never even heard the song we just rolled tape and it clicked. It was the coolest thing. I'd like to do a whole record that way because what came out was so pure. We had no idea how it was going to turn out. It instantly took on a life of its own, which was amazing." >>
