I'll Count the Days

Album: Heaven Deluxe Edition (2012)
  • Rebecca Ferguson teamed up with soundtrack legend Don Black to record this song for the television series, Downton Abbey. However, she admitted to the Liverpool Echo that prior to laying down the tune, she had yet to catch the early 20th century drama. "I am really into period dramas and I've got the box sets for series one and two, but I just haven't got round to watching them yet," she said. "I'm just going to have to try and get as much in before the new one starts."

    Ferguson added: "When I went to record it, I was just so moved by it and then they told me the story of the characters involved and how it would fit in. I just thought it was really cute and I'm so happy to have been asked to do it."
