Michael McDonald collaboration

Michael McDonald, of the Doobie Brothers, performs lead vocals on the single's B-side - the same track with the lead vocals replaced by McDonald's. McDonald states that Grizzly Bear's songs are "alluring and interesting. So when they mentioned to me about doing this, I said absolutely."[3]
