Ahead of the 25th anniversary of Paul Simon’s classic Graceland, indie artists have teamed up for a music video series of Graceland covers. In this video, the first from the series, Louisiana band Givers offers their rendition of “That Was Your Mother,” accompanied by Dickie Landry. For Givers, the cover offered a great way to pay homage to an important album in their musical development. “Most of us grew up with that album in our household – it’s probably made its way into our subconscious, and it’s influenced the way we play as a band,” says singer-guitarist Taylor Guarisco.
The covers music video series launches May 29th, while the special CD/DVD box set of Graceland is out June 5th on Sony Legacy.
