Here's what Morrison said about the session: 'It was an absolute pleasure to be in the studio with Nelly. She worked really hard to make the track great. She's a unique singer with a style all of her own and she can cover all bases. She was the first person I thought of when I wrote the song and she did a great job'.
Furtado adds, 'James Morrison and I had a awesome night in Toronto recording this track together. His voice is clearly better and more soulful than mine, as he has been mixed a lot louder on the finished song than my squeaky old voice. Maybe he can teach me a few vocal tricks next time we run into each other.'
Morrison will make his Coachella debut April 18 and plans are in the works for a headlining tour this spring in support of his sophomore album 'Songs For You, Truths For Me' (Interscope/ Polydor).
