As we watched this amazing film on [director] Jay [Roach]’s couch… we all had an incredibly moving experience… The feelings and scenes stayed with me and wouldn't leave me for days,” Regina says of her experience with the film, “…I sat at the little keyboard… with all the little words and melodies that had been growing and wrote this song.”
Also from her most recent press release—here are some star quotes:

“Since her breakout… the Soviet-born singer has combined dazzling musician-ship with an ethereal, offbeat presence”

our generation’s Joni Mitchell”
