Circles

Album: The Spirit Indestructible (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • This song was produced by the indie band Passion Pit's lead singer, Mike Angelakos. Furtado told Rolling Stone that she was a big fan of the band before they worked together. "We got hooked up through a friend, and I already loved their album. When somebody suggested [working with] him, I was like, 'oh my God, yes!," the songstess enthused. "We met one day in L.A. Mike and I were working one day writing a song called 'Circles' which is featured on my album - one of my favorites. His production sound is this whole combination of analog keyboards and heavenly, beautiful sounding vocals."
