Well over a year ago many of us were introduced to LA- based singer/songwriter Eddie Berman thanks to his stellar duet with Laura Marling on Bruce Springsteen's hit "Dancin' in the Dark." The duet was marked with stoic simplicity, which resulted in an awe-inspiring, almost spiritual cover. After a long wait, the duo is back with yet another remarkably tranquil cover, this time tackling another legend with Bob Dylan's "Like A Rolling Stone." Take a listen below.
Eddie and his band the Iron Rails have since played a few shows in London and LA and have a moody, folky EP out, "Blood & Rust" which for some reason was insanely hard to find at the time of Eddie and Laura's "Dancin' in the Dark" duet. None of Eddie's music was available on music services like iTunes or Spotify, which has, thankfully, changed and is now available on Spotify. I, for one, am really pleased to see this incredibly talented plucker, singer/ songwriter get his music out there. His new album, Polyhymnia, is out October 21st.
In the meantime, revisit one of the best covers I've ever heard, and check out "Blood & Rust" below.
