New Covers E.P. for Will Saunders
Auckland musician Will Saunders is set to release his new covers e.p. entitled I Know That We Are Not New - out Friday December 15th.
Saunders cose the following songs because:
"Eight Miles High - The Byrds
I was playing what I thought was a great new riff for a song. Worked on it for about half an hour before I realised I’d just worked out Eight Miles High…. Can’t be ripping things off so thought I’d cover it instead.
Another song I became obsessed with by the great Roky Erickson. …Waking up in the night with the lyrics running through my head etc. Had to exorcise it by recording it.
Soviet Snow - Shona Laing
A fantastic song I’ve always loved by a NZ treasure. I nearly sang it too…
Hey That’s No Way To Say Goodbye - Leonard Cohen
Having always loved his first album especially, I learned this for a sold out tribute show at The Wine Cellar a few months back. Anything to get a peek into a room in The Tower Of Song."
This will be a free online release available at:
Pre-release available to hear and download here:
Will will be playing live-to-air on 95bfm from The Kings Arms on the day of release at 5:30 to kick off the 95Bfm Xmas party and have a chat with the Drive show hosts Jonny & Big Hungry.
His new solo E.P of original songs will be released early 2018.
