"The song is about a woman I know who shall remain anonymous ... It's not about me," the singer tells Spinner. "We shot the video in the Soho area of London. The close-up shots were filmed on a rooftop three roofs down from where Elton John allegedly wrote 'Your Song.'"
For the bar scenes, Diane didn't opt for having iced tea stand in for booze. "I rarely drink whiskey, but I drank a little for the bar scene," she says. "I passed off what I couldn't handle to my husband, Tom."

Diane is currently on tour throughout the US with fellow folkies Fleet Foxes. Her latest album, 'Wild Divine,' is available now via Rough Trade.
