The track Crossroads from Marketa Irglova's album titled Anar. There was not an actual track recording anywhere on YouTube so I had to add this.

Markéta Irglová (born 28 February 1988, in Valašské Meziříčí, Czech Republic) is a Czech songwriter, musician, actress, and singer. As of 2010, she resides in New York City.

Irglová began playing music at age 7, and began playing piano at the age of 8 when her parents bought her a piano and sent her to lessons. When she was 9, her father bought her a guitar and she immediately began playing and learning songs by ear. Her mother insisted Markéta learn piano because, as a child, her mother's family could never afford a piano even though she loved it so much.

Irglová collaborates with Glen Hansard of the Irish rock band The Frames, whom she met when he was visiting Valašské Meziříčí, and performs with him as The Swell Season. They released an eponymous album, The Swell Season (album), on Overcoat Recordings in 2006. In 2007, she co-starred with Hansard in the indie movie Once, written and directed by John Carney. Hansard and Irglová wrote all but one of the songs featured in the film. The movie won the World Cinema Audience Award for a dramatic film at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival. She and Hansard began dating while making the film Once. In 2009, Hansard said that he and Irglová were no longer romantically linked, and that they are now "good friends." In November 2010, Irglová reported on her Twitter that she was headed to Chicago to record a forthcoming solo album...which is now titled Anar and will be released August 9th, 2011.
