“I’m getting married in July, so once again, I was writing about people who are starting over and having their second chance at true love. It’s very much like a proposal in a version of a song.
“Gregg Wattenberg and I got together and sort of batted the song around. The lyrics came very quickly to me. We started experimenting with huge amounts of vocals. The idea was that we weren’t going to have a ton of instrumentation and walls of guitars, although it’s not sparse – there’s drums, bass, keyboards, guitars and some dulcimer on it, a few bits and bobs. I used a Taylor and the Gibson Hummingbird on this, blending them together.
“The rest of it is just vocals. We built so many harmonies, which was a lot of fun. Gregg is so good at that. It sounds incredible, too. Even when you stack all of the vocals together, like a wall of voices, there’s still so much room and air in the track.”
