In honor of Valentine’s Day and in anticipation of their forthcoming album Hands, Super Human Happiness has released a live mix tape featuring covers of love songs.
“The tunes are all songs from our youth in the 80s and might seem un-hip, but we aren’t being ironic. These songs first offered us glimpses into adult intimacy when we were just little dudes,” said band leader Stuart Bogie.
The band includes members who have been involved with acts ranging from Iron & Wine and Martha Wainwright to TV on the Radio and Antibalas, so it’s natural that the band would have such respect for the work of other musicians.
“We love the songs and the artists very much, and debated which songs to choose from their illustrious catalogs of emotionally charged sonic waterbeds,” said Bogie.
Listen to the Lovers Covers collection in the player below, and look our for Hands, set for release on March 5 via Royal Potato Family.
