British singer Duffy recently played an intimate acoustic set at the Rolling Stone's office, showcasing songs from her just-released second album Endlessly.
During the session, she talks about how she wrote nearly all of the songs on the album with Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr.'s 66-year-old father Albert Sr., who has written or co-written hits like the Hollies' "Air That I Breathe," Starship's "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" and Leo Sayer's "When I Need You." Duffy then performs the ballad "Don't Forsake Me."
Next, she explains how her collaboration came about with the Roots on the album version of "Well, Well, Well," and then plays the song with her touring band. During that performance, you'll also see the integral role that an empty beer bottle plays in the song's arrangement.
