Natalie Prass released her acclaimed self-titled debut album earlier this year via Spacebomb/StarTime International. And on November 20 she’ll be releasing a new EP, Side by Side, via StarTime International. It includes three covers. We’ve already heard Prass’ version of Anita Baker’s “Caught Up in the Rapture.” Now she has shared her cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence.” Check it out below.

“I dig the S & G… not like most people do,” Prass said about the cover in a press release. “I can put it on for like a few songs because the lyrics and soft singing are very soothing, but then I’ll have to put on James Brown Live at the Apollo just to balance it out. Carmen McRae’s psychedelic version of this song is brilliant. We did it her way. It’s got that balance. This kind of style of music comes very naturally to us Richmond music folk. This was a one take Jake.”

Side by Side also includes new versions of debut album cuts “My Baby Don’t Understand Me” and “Christy” (both which you can listen to here), as well as a cover of Grimes’ “REALiTi.” The EP was recorded live at the Spacebomb Studios in Richmond, VA, where she also recorded her album.

Check out the cover below. Also read our Pleased to Meet You Spotlight interview with Prass and our separate recent print magazine article on Prass.
