Inspired by duets such as Gram Parsons & Emmylou Harris, Neil Young & Nicolette Larson, Nancy Sinatra & Lee Hazelwood as well as more traditional songs as collected by archivists Alan Lomax or Harry Smith, and contemporary songs such as Johnny Cash's ‘Delia's Gone’ or ‘Where the Wild Roses Grow’ by Nick Cave and Kylie; Emily has teamed up with friend and musical peer Frank Turner, to create a wickedly dark murder ballad with a strong male and female duet at its core.

Released on 7” vinyl, the single is backed with Emily Barker’s track ‘Nostalgia’ which features as the theme tune to Kenneth Branagh’s television series Wallander which won her a Royal Television Society Award for best TV theme, with series composer Martin Phipps winning a BAFTA for best soundtrack.
