Hear The Grahams cover the Mazzy Star classic ‘Fade Into You’

Nashville’s The Grahams have a very busy 208 ahead.  In addition to a new studio album with Black Keys producer Richard Swift in charge of twiddling the knobs and extensive live appearances, the duo will also unveil a new documentary ‘Love & Distortion’, where The Grahams “explore the real America…on Route 66“.

The documentary will feature an all-star Nashville soundtrack, with contributions from Lilly Hiatt, Dylan LeBlanc and many more.  Most importantly, it will feature previously unreleased tracks by The Grahams themselves, in the form of two classic cover tunes.

In addition to an upbeat and countrified take on the Pretenders’ classic ‘Don’t Get Me Wrong’, The Grahams also put their mark on the Mazzy Star classic ‘Fade Into You’.  ‘Fade’ has been covered by various artists in the past, but the Grahams’ woozy take on it holds up with the very best.  They take the original melody, add a moody country twist and heavy bass drum, all without losing too many of the hazy dreampop qualities of the original version.   You can take a listen for yourselves below.

‘Fade Into You’ and ‘Don’t Get Me Wrong’ will also be included on a strictly limited edition 7″, only available on The Grahams’ UK tour, which takes in various small venues up and down the country, before culminating in two shows at London’s O2 in March.
