Jim James revealed in a press release that the song is a distinctly influential song to Secretly Canadian Co-Founder Chris Swanson:

“Chris Swanson and I started out in the music world around the same time and I have always appreciated his friendship and support. It’s been amazing to watch all of the wonderful music Secretly has helped bring into this world…so when he asked me to cover one of his favorite songs from childhood in honor of Secretly’s big 25th I was excited to do so, and even more excited once I got to know and love the song, which I had never heard before…but is now one of my all time faves too.”

 

 

The proceeds from all SC25 will benefit  New Hope For Families, who's mission is to aid every homeless family in Bloomington, Ind.
