Album: Band of Joy (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • This is one of a pair of tracks that Plant recorded for Band of Joy, which he took from Duluth, Minnesota downbeat indie rock band Low's 2005 album, The Great Destroyer. Plant told Mojo: "I had to try and make it more creepy-crawl than them. It could be This Mortal Coil's kid sister, a 4AD release from 1991."
