The four songs on this EP were specially chosen by Emily and the band from a list they had put together of music that informed and inspired the writing and arranging on their critically acclaimed album 'Dear River'. They are 'Do Right Woman, Do Right Man' performed by Aretha Franklin, Patti Smith's 'Easter', Bruce Springsteen's 'Tougher Than the Rest' and Linda Thompson's version of Tom Waits' 'Day After Tomorrow'.
'The best is saved until last in the form of Tom Waits' Day After Tomorrow. Here Barker brings a tenderness and heartbreak to the song that makes it her own.' Hi-Fi
