Chris Whitley cover | Sneak-peek listen from “Dress-Up”!

We’ve got a new EP coming out early in the New Year, a covers record called Dress-Up! We’re wracking ourselves a little to do the songs that we love some decent justice — to cast them in a new and personal light, as one would hope anyone tries to do when stepping up to a cover. And so the set list has changed a little over the months, as we cry “uncle” to some songs, and others that we didn’t even expect to do so fall together easily. “Dirt Floor” is one song we’ve had our sites on for years (and one our good friends Ollabelle took for a great ride this year too). Cover Me just ran a nice piece about the track, and is offering it as a free download as well. Check out the story (and hear the song!) here.
