Dawn McCarthy and Bonnie “Prince” Billy are no strangers to collaboration, and now they’ve announced the completion of a brand new album inspired by The Everly Brothers.
The collection of songs are retooled for today’s listeners while still remaining faithful to the brothers’ vision. “Their harmonies are in the tradition, but they are their own, not cutting-on-the-dotted-line of Everlys magic,” the press release reads.
Recorded and mixed by David Ferguson, What the Brothers Sang features a cast of accomplished musicians whose credits grace hundreds of records. It will be released Feb. 9, 2013.
