Steve Gunn released a new album, The Unseen In Between, back in January via Matador. Now he has covered Neil Young's "Motion Pictures (For Carrie)" for Amazon Music. The original was found on Young's On the Beach, which celebrates its 45th anniversary tomorrow. Listen below if you have Amazon Music, followed by Gunn's upcoming tour dates.

Gunn had this to say about the cover in a press release: "'Motion Pictures' perfectly captures the wistful anxiety of 'living in between' the real world and being on the road. Like Neil, I also find watching TV in hotel rooms inspiring."

Previously Gunn shared The Unseen In Between's first single, "New Moon" (which was our #1 Song of the Week). Then he shared another song from the album, "Stonehurst Cowboy," which was inspired by his father, as well as a live acoustic video for the song filmed in London. The third single from the album was "Vagabond," shared via a video for the song (it was also one of our Songs of the Week). Then Gunn shared a live acoustic video of him performing "Vagabond" in a London bookshop in Cecil Court. Then he shared a live acoustic video where he performed the album's "Chance" next to the Albert Memorial in London. Then he shared two new non-album tracks, "Be Still Moon" and "Shrunken Heads," both were recorded during the sessions for The Unseen In Between.

The Unseen In Between is the follow-up to 2016's Eyes on the Lines, which was his debut for Matador. Two weeks after the release of Eyes on the Lines, Gunn's father died after a two-year battle with cancer. His passing influenced the new album, in particular "Stonehurst Cowboy." A previous press release said the song "distills the lessons Gunn learned from his father and it is a solemn but tender remembrance, a tribute to his father's reputation as a tough, wise, and witty guy from far west Philadelphia." 

James Elkington produced The Unseen In Between, which was engineered by Daniel Schlett.
