Free Energy – “Somebody’s Baby” (Jackson Browne Cover)
Good news for Los Angeles residents: The great retro-rock quintet Free Energy is going to be spending some time in your city. The band is about to start a residence at the Echo, and this seems like as good a reason as any for the band to release a bunch of covers online. The first of those covers is a faithful, dependably slick studio version of Jackson Browne’s deathlessly breezy 1982 jam “Somebody’s Baby,” and you can download it below.
That Echo residency starts this Monday, and the band’s very good new album Love Sign is out now on their own Free People label.
