“Because Of Your Eyes” (Merle Haggard Cover)


    Will Oldham is releasing a cover of Merle Haggard’s “Because of Your Eyes” as part of a single to be released on a subsidiary of the Spiritual Pajamas label named folkYEAH!. The 7-inch single is due out next week and will also include a version of Roy Harper’s “I’ll See You Again,” but you can hear a clip of Oldham’s Haggard cover in the clip above. It sounds like it’s going to be a typically downcast piece of melancholia, with Oldham continuing to work in a field in which he is extremely well versed at this point in his career. Copies of the single are now available to pre-order via the Midheaven website, priced at $6.75 each. [via 24Bit]
