Sheryl Crow Talks About St. Vincent
Prior to the release of "Wouldn't Want To Be Like You," Crow revealed that she personally reached out to St. Vincent to work with her on the song. Crow told St. Vincent that she wants her to give her song St. Vincent's signature twist. Following their conversation, Crow sent St. Vincent a copy of the song.
"And I sent it to her, and her response was, 'F***, yeah.' That was a direct quote, as only Annie Clark can respond, which I loved. She did all kinds of stuff on it, and we pretty much used all of it," said Crow.
