Weyes Blood (aka Natalie Mering) released a new album, Front Row Seat to Earth, last October via Mexican Summer and it made it all the way to #9 on our Top 100 Albums of 2016 list. In January she teamed up with Ariel Pink for a collaborative EP, Myths 002. Now she has put out a new 7-inch via Mexican Summer that includes two covers: Soft Machine’s “A Certain Kind” and Fred Neil’s iconic “Everybody’s Talkin’.” The latter was written by Neil in 1966 and released by him in 1967, but is probably better known by Harry Nilsson’s Grammy winning version, which was on his 1968 album Aerial Ballet and was prominently featured in the 1969 film Midnight Cowboy (the deserving Oscar winner for Best Picture) and made it to #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Mering’s version is much slower than the original. Listen to both covers below.
