Van Etten had this to say about her cover in a press release: "When I was asked to cover a Flaming Lips song for Gortimer Gibbons, I was really nervous. But when I watched the scene and heard from the people involved in the music, they really wanted to hear my interpretation of both the scene and the song. The show is sweet and smart and family oriented - and that is really important to me. So glad I was able to be a part."
