The album is a collaboration with Neill MacColl. The pair met at the Daughters of Albion concert at the Barbican in 2005 where she performed "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face", which was written by Neill MacColl's father, Ewan MacColl. They met up in May 2007 to write and record 21 songs for the album in six days.
The album garnered positive reviews with The Independent calling the album "a magical meeting of intuitive musical minds". The BBC's Michael Quinn claimed it is "a disc to be cherished from the first note to the last". Drowned in Sound said "There is such an ease to each composition, as if they have been played for years". The Guardian decided "it would be a major triumph if there was just a little variety in the mood & pace".
