Juliana Hatfield has introduced a brand new addition to her sequence of covers albums. Juliana Hatfield Sings ELO drops November seventeenth by way of American Laundromat Data, whereas her rendition of “Don’t Deliver Me Down” is out now.
As indie rock royalty, it might come as a shock that Hatfield would benefit from the pop stylings of Electrical Gentle Orchestra. But you may simply hint her inarguably catchy music to the band’s melodies. “ELO songs have been at all times approaching the radio once I was rising up. They have been a dependable supply of enjoyment and fascination,” Hatfield mentioned in a press release. “With this album of covers I wished to get my arms deep into among the huge ‘70’s hits however I’m additionally shining a light-weight on among the later work… My process was to try to break all of the issues down and reconstruct them subtly till they felt like mine.”
Hatfield needed to get into the trivialities of “Don’t Deliver Me Down” so as to put her personal spin on the 1979 traditional. The observe “is such a strong building that attempting to transform it initially felt like taking a sledgehammer to concrete,” she mentioned. “I didn’t fear about matching all the unique’s precise sounds and elements, and we even dared a number of cymbal crashes (the ELO model has one famously unchanging drum loop–no crashes—from begin to end). This isn’t a radical reinvention but it surely is a bit more bubbly.”
Pre-orders for Juliana Hatfield Sings ELO are ongoing. The LP will probably be obtainable on CD, cassette, and 4 completely different colours of vinyl, and a restricted version 7-inch will characteristic two songs not current on the album: “I’m Alive” and “Once I Was a Boy.” The mission follows Hatfield’s different covers albums, 2018’s Juliana Hatfield Sings Olivia Newton-John and 2019’s Juliana Hatfield Sings The Police.
