Recorded during the sessions for Johnny Cash’s last album, this duet happened more or less by chance. According to producer Rick Rubin, “Joe was coming every day, because he loved Johnny Cash, and he just happened to be in L.A. on vacation". It seems fitting somehow that one of the last songs both Strummer and Cash would record would be this one, and that they would sing it together. Both passed away within a year of this recording.

And he actually extended his trip a week longer just to come every day and be around Johnny.”
