Last week, Kevin Morby announced his new album This Is a Photograph, sharing a video for its lead single ‘Rock Bottom’. Along with the announcement, he launched a newsletter on Substack, and on his 34th birthday yesterday, he shared a cover of the Replacements’ ‘Swinging Party’. You can check it out here.
“In between interviews I found myself fiddling with Swingin Party by the Replacements on my guitar in an open G tuning (or the Keith Richards tuning where the high E remains an E but everything else is tuned to open G),” Morby wrote in a separate post. “I thought I’d share a little phone recording I did of it with you all as a little celebration, and to say thank you for everyone who’s subscribed.”
This is 34!
I wrote a little bit about birthdays today on my Substack & shared a little Replacements cover. ”…Somewhere there’s a party, here it never ended can’t remember when it started”. Love y’all so much! And am so happy to be here. Xoxohttps://t.co/9yksvST6B6 pic.twitter.com/wbk60g6cTs
