About this song

Mercer told UK newspaper The Independent about the songwriting process for Port of Morrow. "I'm responsible for the songs," he said. "I write the songs, I write the lyrics, I come up with the big ideas. From that point on it's a collaboration. Greg [Kurstin] co-produced it, he put it together, he figured out the overall aesthetic and how these songs will be presented. And Nik [Freitas], who plays a bunch of guitar on the record, was hugely influential on its sound. There are a lot of great hooks that he just came up with on the spot."Read more on Last.fm.
