Ever since Steve Gunn released his critically acclaimed fourth studio album Unseen In Between and follow-up Unseen Acoustic in 2019, we’ve been eagerly awaiting a new collection of songs from the prolific songwriter and guitarist. We’re happy to report that Steve Gunn has a new EP out today titled Livin’ In Between,featuring three cover songs released last year exclusively as Amazon Original and Aquarium Drunkard Lagniappe Session singles respectively, that will now be available on all streaming platforms for the first time.
The EP showcases Steve’s varied musical tastes, featuring a gorgeous rendition of Neil Young’s ‘Motion Pictures (For Carrie)’, a thoughtful take on longtime collaborator Michael Chapman’s ‘Among The Trees’, and a shocking cover of The Misfits’ ‘Astro Zombies’ that brings the somber poetry obscured by the brashness of the original tune into sharp relief. Listen to the new EP HERE.
Accolades for Unseen In Between keep rolling in, the most recent being a nomination for an A2IM Libera Award for ‘Best Americana Album’. On August 2of this year, Steve will be performing as a duo with William Tyler at major music festival Newport Folk in Rhode Island. Steve also just put out a tribute to John Prine, a dreamy version of Blaze Foley’s ‘Clay Pidgeons’ sung with Shannon Lay that can be heard HERE.
Livin’ In Between Tracklist:
1. Motion Pictures (For Carrie)
