The White Swan, the band that consists of Kittie drummer and vocalist Mercedes Lander, bassist Kira Longeuay, and Bloodmoon Collective guitarist Shane Jeffers, will release their new EP Nocturnal Transmission on September 18.
The band is now streaming their cover of Tracy Bonham's "Tell it To the Sky", which vocalist and drummer Mercedes Lander said was a song she's always wanted to cover.
"I’ve always thought that 'Tell it To the Sky' was a fantastically well-written song. I always try to really think outside the box when it comes to choosing covers and I tend to pick songs that you wouldn’t expect a band like The White Swan to cover.
"Tracy Bonham's The Burdens of Being Upright was released the same year I started playing drums and started my first band and this was my favorite song from that record when it was released.
"I did my best to capture the soaring vocal melodies and we added some layered EBow for the verses which creates a bit of a darker vibe from the original."
