Gill Landry – “Take This Body” (Feat. Laura Marling) (Stereogum Premiere)

Folk singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Gill Landry, a member of Old Crow Medicine Show and founder of the Kitchen Syncopators, is set to release his third solo album in less than two weeks. As the self-titled project quickly approaches, Landry offers “Take This Body,” a gorgeously gloomy duet with Laura Marling about longing for more from love than mere companionship. Beautiful guitar lines, rich fiddle strokes, space-filling drums, and delicate piano chords surround simple but powerful lyrics, first from Landry, then from Marling, before they harmonize on the hook. Listen below.

Landry is in the middle of a humongous tour including US dates with Justin Townes Earle and European dates with Marling:
