We are pleased to announce the next installment of our 10 Year Anniversary 7″ series- Gold Leaves covering Lee Hazlewood‘s “Won’t You Tell Your Dreams” backed with the original pressed on custom smokey-grey wax! Incase you haven’t heard, we just recently celebrated our 10 year anniversary and we’re celebrating by releasing a series of very special colored vinyl 7”s and digital downloads. The series features contemporary artists covering a track reissued by Light In The Attic on the A-side, plus the original version on the B-side.
In 2011, Seattle band Gold Leaves released one of our favorite albums of the year, The Ornament, their debut long player (released by Hardly Art/Sub Pop). We’ve been obsessing over their sound ever since and are honored to have the band contributing a track for our anniversary 7″ singles series. For the series, Gold Leaves record a hazy take on Lee Hazlewood’s “Won’t You Tell Your Dreams.” Found on the flip side is Hazlewood’s version, which was originally included on his solo album Requiem For An Almost Lady, and also appears on our compilation, The LHI Years: Singles, Nudes, & Backsides.
Other artists in the series include Iggy Pop & Zig Zags covering Betty Davis, Mark Lanegan covering Karen Dalton, Charles Bradley & The Menahan Street Band covering Rodriguez, Ariel Pink and Dam-Funk covering Donnie & Joe Emerson, and Sweet Tea (feat. Alex Maas of the Black Angels & Erika Wennerstrom of the Heartless Bastards) covering Wendy Rene. More releases in the series to be announced.
