"Don't Wait Too Long" is the only original track from Madeleine Peyroux's second solo album Careless Love and it was written by Peyroux herself, Jesse Harris and Larry Klein. The song was released as a single, so Rounder Records made an EP, which also contained an acoustic version of "Don't Cry Baby" (a Bessie Smith cover). In 2006, at a concert in Moore, Peyroux was quoted saying that her "whole life is in this song".

Promotion and publicity[edit]

A video clip was also filmed.[1] It was set on a busy street where all kinds of different people were passing by while Peyroux glanced at them. It also showed the singer playing with her guitar, possibly reminiscing her past in the streets of Europe.

In 2005, the song was featured in a Dockers commercial nationwide.[where?]
