Kurt Vile - Speed, Sound, Lonely KV EP
|Status:||ITEM CAN SHIP IMMEDIATELY|
Kurt Vile's new EP Speed, Sound, Lonely KV was recorded at the famous Butcher Shoppe studio in Nashville, TN in sporadic sessions over the last four years. The five songs include covers of John Prine and "Cowboy" Jack Clement, as well as two original compositions.
The EP was recorded alongside a cast of local heavies like Bobby Wood, Dave Roe, Kenny Malone and Matt Sweeney. Most importantly, it features what Kurt has called "probably the single most special musical moment in my life" - a duet with the late John Prine. The song they recorded during their joint session, a cover of Prine’s “How Lucky,” off 1979’s Pink Cadillac, serves as a loose tribute to his hero. There’s also a solo cover of the 1986 tune “Speed of the Sound of Loneliness,” which Vile covered with Prine on Prine’s final tour, and Prine’s spirit undoubtedly lingers in the two new originals featured on this EP.
Heavyweight vinyl produced by Matador Records in 2021.
