The album features guest vocals from Gail Ann Dorsey, Lisa Hannigan, Sharon Van Etten, Mina Tindle, Kate Stables, and the Brooklyn Youth Choir.

“Yes, there are a lot of women singing on this, but it wasn’t because, ‘Oh, let’s have more women’s voices’,” says vocalist Matt Berninger in a somewhat questionable explanatory quote. “It was more, ‘Let’s have more of a fabric of people’s identities’. It would have been better to have had other male singers, but my ego wouldn’t let that happen.”
