Spektor arranged strings for this song, "but instead of a traditional quartet we had two cellos. I'm drawn to that, the lower sounds - bass, cello, tuba, that warm bottomy sound."

A physical EP was released in the U.S. on June 9, 2009. Apart from "Laughing With", it contains the songs Folding Chair, from Spektor's upcoming album; "The Call", which was featured in the soundtrack of the film The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian; and a live performance of "The Noise" from the Live at Bull Moose EP.
