Juliana Hatfield Adds ELO To Covers Series With “Don’t Bring Me Down” TODAY
“DON’T BRING ME DOWN” OUT NOW
American Laundromat Records is thrilled to announce the third installment from Juliana Hatfield’s covers series with the release of “Don’t Bring Me Down,” the first single from Juliana Hatfield Sings ELO available today!
“ELO’s ‘Don’t Bring Me Down’ is such a solid construction that trying to rework it initially felt like taking a sledgehammer to concrete. I didn’t worry about matching all the original’s exact sounds and parts, and we even dared a few cymbal crashes. This is not a radical reinvention but it is a little more bubbly.”
The covers series aims “to go deep into covering artists that were important to me in my formative years” with each album and its celebrated artist thoughtfully chosen and curated. Preceded by Juliana Hatfield Sings Olivia Newton-John (2018) and Juliana Hatfield Sings The Police (2019), Juliana Hatfield Sings ELO will create a trifecta of pop/rock icons who have served as inspiration.
Juliana Hatfield Sings ELO, out 11/17/23, is available for pre-order now on CD, cassette, LP (4 color options), and a limited edition 7-inch featuring 2 non-album tracks (“I’m Alive” and “When I Was A Boy”). More information at American Laundromat Records.
