Covering other artists’ worked has served Ben Bridwell (of Band of Horses) and Sam Beam (of Iron & Wine) quite well in the past (see “Georgia” “Forever Young”), so just imagine how their next project will be together. Bridwell joined Beam and Iron & Wine for an entire of covers ranging from Bonnie Raitt and John Cale to Spiritualized and Sade (!) on Sing Into My Mouth (out July 17th). The collaborative’s most recent rework easily caught my attention as they tackled Talking Heads’ classic “This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)”. Ben & Sam’s recognizable vocals harmonize expertly and benefit from the acoustic backing with a bit of twang.
Stream Iron & Wine + Ben Bridwell’s take on “This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)” below, along with two others. Pre-order Sing Into My Mouth via iTunes and catch what should be one helluva show at Mo Pop Festival in Detroit on July 25th & 26th.
