Brittany Howard recorded a new cover of Jackie Wilson’s classic 1967 song “(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher”. Authored by Gary Jackson, Raynard Miner, and Carl Smith, the track was covered by the Alabama Shakes guide as an Amazon Original. The tracks have occasionally been seen in their live sets and were broadcast on Jools Holland’s 2020 New Years Show, which you can watch on YouTube. Check out the studio version below.

She has received five Grammy Awards this year, including best alternative music album, best rock performance (for “Stay High”), best rock song (“Stay High”) and best R&B performance (“Goat Head”) and Best American Roots Performance (“Short and Sweet”).
