ABERDEEN: This one was swimming around in my head for months. I couldn’t get rid of it. Finally, I decided to demo/record it just to get it out of my system. I played the finger-picked guitar part to a click track and then overdubbed the mandolin and vocals; I figured that was it. It didn’t seem like a full band song, and I didn’t intend to use it for anything. When the guys heard it they liked it and it was John who said, “This should be the opening track.” Well, we actually went and re-recorded it with drums and bass but it is the original demo that appears on Three Nights – as the opening track! - Mick


from Three Nights (2010), track released May 1, 2010
