The single was recorded for the soundtrack of the new Rebecca Miller film She Came To Me and also features vocals from his wife, and member of the E Street Band, Patti Scialfa. The National touring members Benjamin Lanz and Kyle Resnick also appear on trombone and trumpet respectively.
“When Rebecca asked me about working on a song for the end credits, I immediately thought (perhaps unrealistically!) that it would be incredible to ask Bruce Springsteen to write a song,” Dessner said [via SPIN]. “Rebecca agreed, and we sent the film to Bruce, and, to our surprise and delight, he responded very positively. Shortly after, Bruce sent us a demo of the song he wrote inspired by the film, which felt like an instant classic the minute we heard it.”
Continuing, Dessner said, “as a lifelong Bruce fan, along with my bandmates, he is one of our biggest influences, it was a dream to work on this song with Bruce, and he was incredibly generous and open to my ideas and contributions.”
