Larkin Poe has released a cover of Phil Collins’ “In The Air Tonight.” The track appears on the duo’s upcoming covers album, Kindred Spirits, available November 20th.
“We feel like every human on earth has probably sung or hummed or air drummed ‘In The Air Tonight’ at least once in their lives,” says Larkin Poe. “There’s a strange, hallow’s eve energy lurking beneath the lyric of this song that has captured countless imaginations, ours included. We wanted to delve deeper into this more sinister vibe by stripping the song back further with only lap steel, vocals, stomps, and claps.”
“When we decided to release this cover today, we were excited because it meant a spooky, moody music video would be a perfect fit,” Larkin Poe adds, “we love the darker undertones of the recording and — with the help of some vibey found footage — created the perfect Halloween flavored video.” The new song and video are delivered in the most timely fashion for these relatives of Edgar Allan Poe.
