Silver Tongue (Demo) was released on 13 July 2004, as a "virtual b-side" to Call My Name. No other version was released at the time. The song’s lyrics were written by Nikka Costa, and it was discussed that her own (final) version would be included on her next album. It is unclear whether Nikka Costa recorded her own studio version at that time, or whether it was ever placed on a configuration of her 2005 album can’tneverdidnothin'. In 2017 Nikka Costa released her version as the ninth track of her album Nikka & Strings, Underneath And In Between.

Initial recording dates are unknown, but it is likely that the track was recorded in early 2004 at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota.
