Can a terrible person write a great song? Can they sing it? These questions - along with the search for an ancient instrument, a chance meeting with a Russian DJ, a crash course in the music of goth-rock legend David Eugene Edwards and a hilarious Ebay experience - inspired "Way Up There (Don't Say a Word)" track 7 from Heaven Get Behind Me. 

In this latest "behind the song" episode we talk about rewriting lullabies as well as the process of trying out different instruments and arrangements. This time we discuss two very different demo versions before we hear the final mastered version of the track.
