Cheryl hadn't performed Summerfly for a number of years before Maura recorded it for this album. However, people started asking Cheryl to sing the song once this album came out. Cheryl would reply that it had been too long, and besides Maura did a great job, people should listen to her version. I guess enough people kept asking, because eventually Cheryl started performing this song again.

On Maura's following album, Stories, Cheryl sings backup.
