Kasey Anderson & The Honkies to Re-Record Song for Band’s Upcoming Full-Length Album, ‘Let the Bloody Moon Rise’

On April 10, 2012, Counting Crows released Underwater Sunshine (Or What We Did on Our Summer Vacation) via Collective Sounds. The album features a cover of Kasey Anderson’s “Like Teenage Gravity,” from his 2010 release Nowhere Nights (Red River Records).

Of the song, Counting Crows’ front man Adam Duritz wrote in the album’s liner notes:

“Ryan Spaulding raved about Kasey Anderson so I bought all the records and I really dug them. I really found out how right Ryan was a few months later when Kasey came down to Austin last year to play Smoke & Sand, Ryan’s Smashing Life ( & Tyrannosaurus Record’s 2011 SxSW showcase. His big lonely rock songs are addictive but he crushed at Smoke & Sand with an acoustic set. Maybe that’s why I chose ‘Like Teenage Gravity’ to cover over songs like ‘I Was A Photograph’ or ‘Exit Ghost.’ I don’t know. I love his recording. It has a sparse almost hymn-like simplicity.”

Kasey Anderson & The Honkies, who are currently in the studio finishing up mixing their forthcoming full-length, Let the Bloody Moon Rise, are re-recording “Like Teenage Gravity” for the album; changing Anderson’s original into a full-on rock song.

Anderson & The Honkies will also spend the summer touring in support of their current release, Heart of a Dog (Red River/Red Parlor). Anderson is currently on a solo acoustic tour in the UK supporting Dave Alvin:

4/18/12 – Komedia w/ Dave Alvin – Brighton, United Kingdom

4/20/12 – Jazz Cafe w/ Dave Alvin – London, United Kingdom
