I didn't know how much I loved you until today

More new Taken By Trees for you, and a bit of a departure musically, with what sounds like a vaguely middle eastern groove (is it? anyone?), and some interesting intriguing instrumentation. 
The lyrics are exceptionally romantic, endless love, simply stated. 
It reminds me of something, I can't quite put my finger on (anyone?), but it is a properly gorge tune.

this is what rough trade sent Blimpy:

"rough trade exclusive with a bonus cd of unreleased tracks and influences including unheard pakistani musicians. victoria bergsman wanted to travel to record in a mysterious, relatively uncharted area avoiding the usual clinical studio experience which she has always disliked and found to be an uncreative environment. she chose pakistan. sole accompanying musician soderstrom's powerful, often minimal guitar work, victoria's sublime, mysterious vocals and enigmatic lyrics, powered by the sounds, beats and rhythms of genuine local pakistani musicianship (some who play with abida parveen and nusrat fateh ali khan) has created a magical musical concoction. add to this the production skills of dan lissvik (one half of the ultra creative swedish duo studio) who pieced the whole project together back in sweden, and you really have a genuine album of the year contender. standout's are the opening track 'to lose someone' which sets the scene perfectly on this magical experience and the cover of animal collective's 'my girls', which victoria has re-interpreted as 'my boys'".

and look my studio quote is there!

A pretty considerable feat indeed, as "Fatty" Khan died over 10 years ago.
