Wynonna will release a new EP of cover songs, Recollections, on Oct. 30.
The five-song EP features Wynnona covering “I Hear You Knocking” by Fats Domino, “I’m a King Bee” by Slim Harpo, “Angel From Montgomery” by John Prine, “Feeling Good” by Nina Simone and “Ramble On Rose” by the Grateful Dead.
Wynnona recorded much of the album while quarantining on her Tennessee farm with husband, multi-instrumentalist and producer Cactus Moser.
“This EP was a labor of love without the labor,” says Wynonna. “As a songwriter, you can get bogged down in your own craft sometimes, but there’s something so liberating about letting go of all that and just inhabiting someone else’s writing.”
Below, listen to Wynonna perform “I’m a King Bee,” a half-century-old blues tune she and Cactus have been performing live for years.
