Free MP3 from Bettye Lavette
Betty Lavette has a new album coming out wherein she covers 13 songs from the classic British rock songbook. Among the tunes she tackles are songs by the finest bands of classic British rock: Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, and the Who.
From the press release:
Produced by Bettye, Rob Mathes and Michael Stevens, the album is a 13-song journey through compositions by the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd among others, before concluding right where the very idea for Interpretations started: Bettye’s visceral show-stopping rendition of The Who’s “Love Reign O’er Me” from the 2008 Kennedy Center Honors, which appears here as a bonus track.
The disc drops online and in stores on May 25 (check out the Anti- website for the full press release), but the kind folks at Anti- Records are sharing free MP3 of “Salt of the Earth”. Check it out, and let us know what you think.
