In the late ’90s Elliott Smith recorded three a cappella vocals at L.A.’s Sunset Sound Factory, while he was in town working on Good Will Hunting.

Mike Doughty of Soul Coughing found the tape in November 2013 and added electronic dance backing, which he says is what he and Smith originally intended.

According to Pitchfork, “the backing tracks are new productions by Doughty under his UUL alias.”
