COVER: Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr – Revelation Blues (The Tallest Man On Earth)

james deanKristian Matsson aka The Tallest Man On Earth may not seem like an obvious artist for Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr to cover. However, “Revelation Blues” is more of a spirited, melodic track, not the sparse, acoustic narratives that fill much of Matsson’s catalog. DEJJ’s cover expounds upon that energy with an uptempo and harmony-filled synth vigor that showcases the original’s pop potential. The track comes just in time for Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr’s fall tour and will likely make you question your allegiance to the original. Good luck with that.

Stream “Revelation Blues” below, the b-side to “James Dean”. Catch DEJJ on the road this fall, including two dates at The Crofoot in Pontiac on Nov. 22 (tickets) and Nov. 23 (tickets).
