Lykke Li wrote "Hard Rain" with Rostam Batmanglij, formerly of Vampire Weekend. The song documents a storm brewing between lovers. "That's my life," Li cried to Q magazine. "My instinct is that everything's gonna fall apart. I create crazy scenarios. I see things and they happen."
Rostam Batmanglij also contributed background vocals to the track.
"White "Christmas" was so popular that Bing had to re-record the song five years after the original 1942 recording because the original masters had been worn out from all the pressings. This is the version that became a holiday tradition.
