Re-Covered is an album of my versions of songs I wrote with and for other artists. I’ve been thinking about doing this for a while, but I had to wait until my catalog seemed deep enough. My vision for the list of songs was to choose some big hits to re-imagine, and some songs that I’ve always felt got lost in the shuffle. Sonically, the record is a portrait of me and some of my favorite musicians playing and singing live at United Studios in Hollywood. We recorded straight to tape. We all pushed each other to create new vibes for the songs. I didn’t want to do straight-up “covers” of the covers; I wanted to shed new light on both the familiar hits and the less-familiar gems.
