Shovels & Rope are set to release a series of acoustic tracks throughout the Summer, that will culminate in the August 21st deluxe edition release of their 2019 album By Blood.
To begin, the duo have released ‘Carry Me Home’, which can be heard below…
Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent have had a special Fall 2020 tour billed as “An Evening with Shovels & Rope” scheduled for some time. The tour will feature the couple performing a stripped-down set of songs in intimate settings from their body of work. Like all artists, due to Covid-19 all tour plans are tentative right now until further notice.
In the meantime, the duo retreated to their home studio, located nearby in their backyard, and began revisiting and reimaging songs from By Blood as they would in preparation for the tour. The result is five versions of “Come On Utah”, “The Wire”, “I’m Comin’ Out”, “Mississippi Nuthin’” and “Carry Me Home”.
All five tracks will be also included in the digital-only release of By Blood Deluxe Edition.
