Trampled by Turtles will release a new digital covers EP on Friday. Cheekily titled Sigourney Fever, the project includes the roots band’s unique renditions of songs by Neil Young, Iris DeMent, Warren Zevon, Radiohead, and the Faces.
Ahead of the EP’s release, the group premieres their take on “Ooh La La,” the nostalgic 1973 singalong from the Faces. Trampled by Turtles follow the lead of the influential U.K. bar band by enlisting bass player Tim Saxhaug to handle lead vocals instead of singer Dave Simonett — the Faces’ original was sung not by frontman Rod Stewart but by guitarist Ronnie Wood. “Ooh La La” has been a staple of Trampled by Turtles’ live show, always with Saxhaug on vocals.
TBT will hit the road in 2020 for a U.S. tour that runs till the end of February. This week, they announced a headlining show at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado, set for July.
Here’s the track list for Sigourney Weaver, along with the band’s upcoming tour dates.
1. “Pocahontas” (Neil Young)
2. “Ooh La La” (Faces)
3. “Our Town” (Iris DeMent)
4. “Keep Me in Your Heart” (Warren Zevon)
