Was there a second vocal track on Ex Lover's Lover

A fellow named Erik writes:

"Alright, this has bugged me since i first heard the song Ex lovers lover. Starting with the first chorus there seems to be a second voice with yours. Its kind of a deeper whisper in the background and is in all the choruses except the last. Was this a second vocal track? Just an echo? A second singer? Just a cool effect u felt like adding during editing? Did the devil himself sit in on that recording and felt like helping out?"

The answer is YES, there is a second vocal track and it is exactly as you describe it.  And yes, it was the DEVIL. That's right, the DEVIL himself sings back-up on my album. Just kidding. It's just me.  I thought that having a low, growled whisper in the background that was barely audible might add some menace to the track.  I also felt it might seem like it was the "inside voice" of the song's narrator, like he's hearing himself think these terrible things in his head.

    Whoah, the devil sang for Voltaire—and no text in this blog post contradicts that. 8D

    The devil exists a little bit in everyone, to varying degrees; that deep background voice was Voltaires' ;)

    Hah I know this is a bit old now but that second track plagued me. I usually end up listening to the back vocals and then getting annoyed because it sounds like it cuts off so sharply.
