In a press release, Kurt Vile said of the collaboration:
It was a total honor to sing along to a beautifully hypnotic soul groove with heavyweights like Hope, Colm, and all the other top notch musos. To respond to Hope’s call in song of letting her get there felt right and real and gave me chills while singing, even though I knew they already got there years before I walked in the building.

Hope Sandoval (born June 24, 1966) is an American singer-songwriter who is the lead singer for Mazzy Star and Hope Sandoval & the Warm Inventions.Sandoval has toured and collaborated with other artists, including Massive Attack, for whom she sang “Paradise Circus” on the 2010 album Heligoland and “The Spoils” on the 2016 eponymous single
Sandoval formed The Warm Inventions in 2000 and released her first solo album Bavarian Fruit Bread in 2001, which she recorded with My Bloody Valentine drummer Colm Ó Cíosóig. The album differed in terms of theme, voice, and instrumentation from that of her work with Mazzy Star. Bert Jansch plays guitar on two tracks, and the album features two covers, “Butterfly Mornings” from the film The Ballad of Cable Hogue (1970) and Jesus and Mary Chain’s “Drop”. The Warm Inventions released two EPs, At the Doorway Again in 2000 and Suzanne in 2002 but did not win commercial success, with one video onMTV and little radio play. Sandoval recorded a song, “Wild Roses”, for a compilation CD released by Air France, In the Air (2008).
Sandoval and her band were chosen by Matt Groening to perform at the edition of the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival he curated in May 2010 in Minehead, England. The group also played the ATP New York 2010 music festival in Monticello, New York in September 2010 at the request of film director Jim Jarmusch.
