Mark Lanegan and Isobel Campbell

"We don't really talk about it but there's a trust thing there. He's a friend. He's a dear friend, and I know he's said the same of me. It's just about good music and singing with this man that's my friend, and it's an honor for me that he will sing stuff that I wrote, that he respects me. I think we're both interested in songs and we'll talk about... sometimes I'll say, 'I really like your songs' and he'll say, [imitates Lanegan's deep voice] 'No, I really like your songs,' and we'll just go 'Awwww...' [laughs] I think there's an understanding between us that's hard to put into words." [Isobel]
