Iron & Wine and Ben Bridwell "This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody)" (Talking Heads cover)
Published Jun 22, 2015Iron & Wine and Band of Horses' Ben Bridwell have teamed up for a covers album entitled Sing into Your Mouth, and with the LP slated for a July 17 release on Black Cricket Recording Co./Brown Records/Caroline International, they've now shared a version of a Talking Heads tune.
None of the covers on Sing into Your Mouth are predictable hits, and this Talking Heads number is no exception. It's a rendition of "This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody)" from 1983's Speaking in Tongues. The results are in keeping with performers' folksy origins, since the track highlights nimble finger-picking and earthy harmonies along with a few overdubbed textures like pedal steel and accordion.
