Artists: Tanya Donelly and Parkington Sisters
Album: Tanya Donelly and the Parkington Sisters
Released: 14 Augustus 2020

Tany Donelly about this project: “When Joe from American Laundromat asked if I’d be interested in doing a covers album, I was hesitant, mainly because most of the songs I truly love are already perfect in their original form. But then I had the idea to ask the brilliant Parkington Sisters to be the band for this project, to bring their gorgeous sound and spirit. Happily, they said Yes. I chose a handful of songs that have been on heavy rotation in my head and heart from the first time I heard them, and the Sisters took over. These are some of the most honest, moving, beautiful, unfiltered, true and cool songs that have ever been written, in my opinion. And those same adjectives apply to the Parkington Sisters as well.”
