Paavo Lotjonen about making Bittersweet:

"We have all been very busy, but we finally asked Ville to do a song with us and he agreed. Originally, the idea was to have Ville do one song and to have Lauri do another song.
But when Ville heard Lauri was participating, he suggested that he do a duet with Lauri. He suggested a duet with two men. There are not many duets with two men. It was a brilliant idea.
The song was written, Ville and Lauri wrote the lyrics and adjusted the vocals, and they sang it together. That is the story behind that song.
I think that it works really well. What is good is that there is a dark feeling behind the song, and the cellos sound good, and there is a lot of distortion. There is a great connection between us three. Also the voices contrast. Ville's voice is so low and Lauri's is so high, so it fits perfectly."
