Album: Who Are You Selling For (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • This classic southern rock and blues sounding track features Gov't Mule guitarist Warren Haynes. "We had this great southern rock track called 'Back to the River', we recorded the whole thing live and left sections open for some lead parts," said frontwoman Taylor Momsen. "I think it was our guitarist, Ben, who said, we should call Warren Haynes. We did, he said yes, and we're thrilled he did because he raised the song to a new level. His playing is extraordinary."
