Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. – “I Think It’s Gonna Rain Today”

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. - Produce

Detroit dance-pop cheeseballs Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. aren’t content with beasting out on the college-town touring circuit, and they’re getting ready to release an honest-to-god mixtape that they’re calling Produce. The tape promises appearances from rap-world luminaries like Murs, Chuck Inglish, Asher Roth, Quelle Chris, and Slim of the R&B group 112. But the mixtape track they’ve just shared from it doesn’t have any of those guys. Instead, it’s a cover of “I Think It’s Gonna Rain Today,” a 1968 song from the legendarily cynical singer-songwriter Randy Newman, one previously covered by people like Nina Simone and Dusty Springfield and Bette Midler. The Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. version of the song is glitched-out, synth-soaked, and very obviously influenced by Vampire Weekend’s Modern Vampires In The City. Listen to it below.

The Produce mixtape is coming soon.
