So she sent me over the song and said, 'We need to finish this together. I don't have a bridge, I don't have a couple other parts. I said 'Great.' From that point on, for the rest of the tour, the song was just stuck in my head—it's a beautiful earworm of a song. About a month later we met in the studio, finished the song together."
