This Yankee Hotel Foxtrot track finds Jeff Tweedy singing of a man falling apart piece by piece as the comforts of home transform into a prison cell.
Tweedy told Mojo magazine December 2013 there was a strong narrative arc going throughout the album, a unifying philosophy boosted based on reflection on America. He explained: "Up until that point I'd been very negative towards patriotism or feelings of nationality. But traveling round the world, I was starting to feel a deeper understanding that my country has shaped me and it is something that can be defined for yourself without it being a caricature. In other words it was home."
Pitchfork placed Yankee Hotel Foxtrot at #4 on their list of Top 200 Albums of the 2000s. The alternative music website also named this track as the 147th best song of the decade.
Kacey Musgraves originally offered "Follow Your Arrow" to her friend Katy Perry. However, Perry thought Musgraves should record the song herself as it seemed, "like something that you would totally say."
Geffen Records made history on June 27, 1994 when Aerosmith's "Head First" became the first major label song made available for exclusive digital download. Download speeds at the time were so slow it took around 75 minutes to download the track.
