YO LA TENGO Cover THE BYRDS Easily – ‘I WASN’T BORN TO FOLLOW’

27 August 2020

Veteran alt-rockers YO LA TENGO from New Jersey just announced a new EP called SLEEPLESS NIGHT, with covers of five of their favorite songs. One of Bob Dylan, The Flying Machine, The Delmore Brothers, Ronnie Lane, and The Byrds and one new track of their own.

The covers were all initially released as part of a limited-edition catalog for a Los Angeles Country Museum Of Art retrospective of the Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara who assisted the band to choose the five covers.

You can hear here their take on THE BYRDS‘ ballad I WASN’T BORN TO FOLLOW, co-written by Carole King and Gerry Goffin, which was part of the soundtrack of the classic movie Easy Rider
