American Laundromat Records has announced that the third installment from Juliana Hatfield‘s covers series, Juliana Hatfield Sings ELO, will be released on November 17.
Hatfield recently shard “Don’t Bring Me Down,” the first single from her upcoming ELO covers album.
“ELO’s ‘Don’t Bring Me Down’ is such a solid construction that trying to rework it initially felt like taking a sledgehammer to concrete,” Hatfield said of the Herculean task of reworking a beloved classic to make it her own.
She added, “I didn’t worry about matching all the original’s exact sounds and parts, and we even dared a few cymbal crashes. This is not a radical reinvention but it is a little more bubbly.”
The covers series aims “to go deep into covering artists that were important to me in my formative years,” with each album and its celebrated artist thoughtfully chosen and curated.
Juliana Hatfield Sings Olivia Newton-John (2018) and Juliana Hatfield Sings The Police (2019) were the first two albums from her covers series.
Juliana Hatfield Sings ELO is available for pre-order on CD, cassette, LP (4 color options), and a limited edition 7-inch featuring 2 non-album tracks at https://www.alr-music.com/products/jhselo
