Info for Covers
Mo Kenny has shared the third release from the upcoming Covers record (set for release on February 26). While the cover of Daniel Romano’s Hard On You (from 2011’s Sleep Beneath the Willow) may be one of the sparser selections chosen, Kenny certainly makes this one shine. Dan Mangan recently released a set of cover’s, aptly titled Thief…he made the following observation which seems to resonate well here as Kenny certainly does the song justice.
“Every great songwriter is a thief of their own subconscious – maybe a melody from their childhood seeps out, or a phrase from a sandwich board a decade ago. When you’re young, you learn covers because it makes you feel connected to the swirling tornado of music that you so long to be a part of. As an adult, it’s a matter of sanity. I get sick of the same taste in my mouth and I need to sing someone else’s song to cleanse my palate. My approach is that it’s nearly impossible to do a great song justice, and so I need to change it enough from its original form that it can no longer be compared to the source.”
Mo Kenny on Romano’s “Hard On You”: I’ve been a big Daniel Romano fan since I first heard this song. It was so nice to hear a modern country song that was reminiscent of the old stuff. The songwriting is so good, I was excited to strip it down so the lyrics really shine. Recorded in front of one mic at the New Scotland Yard.
Just like a mask—that so-called disguise which, in fact, often reveals something profound and otherwise secret about the individual who wears it—Mo’s upcoming release “ Covers” offers a glimpse into the molecular musical composition of the artist interpreting them
Kenney’s willingness to unflinchingly pursue her artistic impulses on her own terms has resulted in numerous accolades over the past decade, including a 2013 SOCAN Songwriting Prize for her song “Sucker,” a nomination for the 2016 Adult Alternative Album of the Year JUNO for In My Dreams, and too many East Coast Music Awards and Nova Scotia Music Awards to count. And despite the uncertainty of live music in 2020, the year will find Kenney exploring new and innovative ways to connect with her fans.
This album contains no booklet.
