Band Of Horses/ CeeLo Green Split 7"

Regular price $ 7.99

A few months, before his pottymouthed retro-soul jam ["Fuck You"] went viral, Goodie Mob/Gnarls Barkley rapper/belter Cee-Lo released a synthed-up cover of Band of Horses' celestial Southern rock tune "No One's Gonna Love You", complete with a nudity-happy video. And now Band of Horses have returned the compliment. They've teamed up with the University of Georgia Redcoat Marching Band to cover ["Georgia"] a song from Cee-Lo's album The Lady Killer.

On the BoH website, frontman Ben Bridwell explained how his band came to cover the song with the aid of a college marching band: "This began as a very random idea I had on my dad's patio after we watched our beloved Georgia Bulldog football team get robbed of a win at the hands of the referees and LSU last year. I knew I wanted to pay homage to my favorite team in song but didn't have any idea how to begin. Once I heard Cee Lo's 'Georgia', I was immediately smitten and figured that's as good as any tribute to any state I've ever heard. It wasn't until I heard his cover of our song though that it occurred to me: Duh, we should return the favor. Incorporating the Redcoat marching band was just the icing on the cake! This song is so nostalgic to me as my parents grew up in Atlanta and have so many family members in the great state of Georgia. It's always been a second home of sorts. We've played some great shows there as well, including our run of annual New Year's Eve shows in Atlanta from 2007-2009."
