  • This graceful ballad finds Knopfler duetting with singer-songwriter Ruth Moody. "I came across Ruth through hearing her singing with the Wailin' Jennys, her Canadian three-piece girl outfit," he explained. "They always sounded great, and I saw Ruth singing on The Transatlantic Sessions. Then I realized that, of course, she was making her own records, and that they were beautiful. There's just something celestial about her voice. It's quite clear that she's the right stuff. I guess it's just something you recognize."
  • The song features a saxophone cameo by sideman/session player Nigel Hitchcock. The saxophonist has performed with many artists including Tom Jones, Wet Wet Wet, Ray Charles and Robbie Williams. He also contributed to another Tracker track, "River Towns."
