Tomo: "What most people won’t know is that Shannon wrote this song and played practically all the guitars on it. The only thing I did was I put a little electric guitar melody at the beginning - Shannon asked me to lay that part down.
"Shannon had the song kicking around and we really encouraged him to lock himself in his bedroom and do something incredible. After a couple of days, he emerged with this creation that was very beautiful.
"Even though I had very little to do with it, it’s my favorite song on the album to listen to. It’s a great ’put on the headphones and lose yourself’-type track. And I have to say, the little electric guitar I put down is the best tone I got - that‘s the Jazzmaster again."
