This song features Jeff Beck. Taylor explained to Jam! Music how the guitarist ended up on the track. "He's a really good friend of mine actually," he said. "In fact, he came to see me sing on Saturday. And we've done some shows together and it's a fabulous combination. He really is my favorite guitar player. He's so blindingly brilliant - a virtuoso. He can only be him when you hear the guitar."
Taylor added: "The thing on the album is an old song which Jeff chose when we were rehearsing for a charity show we were doing and he said, "Let's do that one. I like that one.' And so we recorded it as we were rehearsing and that's the third take."
