Larkin Poe have shared their rendition of Lenny Kravitz’s ‘Fly Away,’ which follows September’s release of The Moody Blues’ ‘Nights in White Satin’.
These two creative takes on the originals herald the arrival of Kindred Spirits, Larkin Poe’s first-ever covers album and second album of 2020, due out 20 November via their own Tricki-Woo Records. The album was self-produced by Larkin Poe from their home studio.
“Rolling in the family minivan in the late ‘90s, we remember hearing ‘Fly Away’ spun endlessly on the radio — an undeniable anthem,” say Rebecca and Megan Lovell. “The energy of this song is a chameleon: simultaneously a cry for adventure and a prayer for those who feel trapped. Giving it a bluesy twist with the slide guitar riff brought it home to Georgia.”
“For the video, we wanted to create a visual decoupage that would span the swamps of Louisiana to the volcanoes of Hawaii. The lyrics of the song are powerfully open-ended and so we decided to fully embrace that concept by gluing together a hodgepodge of footage gleaned from the Prelinger Archives; beauty is in the eye of the beholder.”
