Whitney – “Tonight I’ll Be Staying Here With You” (Bob Dylan Cover)
Bob Dylan ended his 1969 quasi-comeback album Nashville Skyline with “Tonight I’ll Be Staying Here With You,” a sleepy and blissful sort of love song, one with a view of romance that was much less bitter than most of what he’d written previously. Over the years, the list of artists who have covered the song includes Johnny Cash, Cher, and My Morning Jacket. And now it includes Whitney, too.
The Chicago indie rockers won plenty of fans last year for their mellow, blissful, ramshackle style. And a warm rambling classic-rock love song is pretty much exactly their wheelhouse. Whitney recorded their faithful and reverent version of “Tonight I’ll Be Staying Here With You” for a live-in-studio Spotify session, one that also included a new take on their song “The Falls.” Check it out below.
Whitney’s album Light Upon The Lake is out now on Secretly Canadian.
