The Nashville Country Country Westerns have announced a new cover EP. The self-titled record will be released June 18 via Fat Possum and will feature versions of tracks by Richard and Linda Thompson, Dead Moon and more, as well as an original song. Today (May 11th) Country Westerns shared their rendition of Jad Fair (Half Japanese) and Norman Blakes (Teenage Fan Club) “Undeletable” along with an official video. Check it out below.
“I’ve always been a fan of the Half Japanese and Teenage Fan Club. I was fortunate enough to find this record,” said Country Westerns’ Joseph Plunket in a press release. “I think it became an anthem for our band. It reminds me of AC / DC’s “It’s a long way up (if you want rock and roll).” It’s a more positive song than I could ever write. I love it and I hope we did it justice. “
The Country Westerns EP was recorded in the garage practice room of drummer Brian Kotzur’s house. Most of the EP was recorded live, while “Undeleteable” was recorded in several shorter sessions.
Country Westerns released their self-titled debut album last year. Read about it in Pitchfork’s “The 35 Best Rock Albums of 2020” list.
