►Susanna Hoffs Under the Covers 2

Thursday, April 23, 2009


In 2006, Susanna Hoffs fom the band, The Bangles, teamed with longtime friend and fellow 60s music enthusiast, Matthew Sweet, to record an album of covers from their favourite 60s tunes. Three years later, they have joined talents once again to record Under the Covers 2, which will pay homage to the music of the 70s. It will be released on July 21 2009.

Here is a sneak peek at the proposed track listing and the original artists who performed the songs.
