“This is the last song we recorded for the album. We needed one more oddball choice, and Kevin came up with this track, which was written by Michael Kamen and Tim Curry. He played it for me and I said, 'It’s perfect!'
“What I like about it is, it’s a very desperate blues track - moody and dark and strange. We got this incredible vocalist, Beth Hart, to sing on it, as well, and she’s great, man. I’m actually doing an album with her; it’s going to be a collection of soul covers. She was in the studio with us at the time, and I thought, Well, I might as well have her help me out on this one; she got the perfect voice. She’s killer!
“We cut it live, we’re singing live - it’s got spirit and true feeling. Again, it’s a bit of a weird choice, but that’s why I like it so much.You have to throw some left curves at people sometimes.”
