Muzz – “Nobody Wants A Lonely Heart” (Arthur Russell Cover)
Earlier this year, Paul Banks, Matt Barrick, and Josh Kaufman unveiled their indie supergroup Muzz. A self-titled album arrived in June, but apparently that’s not all the band was cooking up. Before the 2020’s over, Muzz are returning with a covers EP. It’s titled Covers and it’s out next week.
The picks are touted as a representation of the different inspirations for each individual Muzz member, and the sound they make when they get together. There are some bold picks in the mix, including Bob Dylan’s “Girl From The North Country” and Mazzy Star’s “Fade Into You.” They also took on Tracy Chapman’s “For You” and Arthur Russell’s “Nobody Wants A Lonely Heart.”
Along with the announcement, Muzz have shared the latter. You can hear Muzz’s interpretation of “Nobody Wants A Lonely Heart” and revisit Russell’s original below.
