Kevin Morby And Hamilton Leithauser Trade Covers Of Each Other’s Music

Kevin Morby and The Walkmen’s Hamilton Leithauser took some time out to give a coordinated nod to each other’s songwriting. Both musicians came together to trade stripped-down covers of their music on social media, which was meant to tease the duo’s joint 2021 Fall Mixer North American tour.

Morby shared a cover of “A 1000 Times” while lying in bed, the album opener to Leithauser and Rostam’s 2016 joint album I Had A Dream That You Were Mine. Leithauser also opted to pull an album opener from Morby’s catalog, choosing the introspective track “Come To Me Now” off the singer’s 2017 effort City Music.

In a message embedded in his cover’s video, Leithauser said “Come To Me Now” was the first song of Morby’s he had ever heard:

“My family and I put every last bit of our combined technical know-how into making this production. This is the first song of Kevin’s I’d ever heard — I originally discovered it because it was produced by our mutual friend the late, great Richard Swift, and I’ve always really liked it, and I wanted to do it proper justice. So we rehearsed, and we set up a lot of stuff in a field in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.”
