With their new covers album ‘Candid’ landing on 14th August via Secretly Canadian, Whitney are sharing their latest cover, unveiling their reworking of the collaborative David Byrne and Brian Eno track ‘Strange Overtones’.
“The most fun part of recording this was figuring out the solo,” guitarist Max Kakacek explains. “Malcolm slayed it on the piano and having him tackle it made so much sense even though this is the first time we’ve ever had a keys solo on a recorded track. I remember after his take, which killed, he said, ‘I went into it thinking Bruce Hornsby but I came out of it thinking Bruce Springsteen.’”
The track follows their previous covers of John Denver’s ‘Country Roads, Take Me Home, SWV’s ‘Rain’ and The Roches’ ‘Hammond Song’.
