Whitney have shared a new cover of David Byrne/Brian Eno’s ‘Strange Overtones’

Whitney have dropped a brand new cover, this time of ‘Strange Overtones’

The track, originally recorded by David Byrne and Brian Eno, is the latest to be unveiled ahead of the release of their new covers album ‘Candid’ - set for release on August 14th. Following on from their versions of ‘Take Me Home, Country Roads’, ‘Rain’ and ‘Hammond Song’ - it’s another delightful ode to some of the duo’s favourite songwriters. Smooth too!

Speaking about ‘Strange Overtones’, Max Kakacek explains: “The most fun part of recording this was figuring out the solo. 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.’”
