Matt Nathanson has shared a cover of Chance the Rapper‘s “Same Drugs.” The cover is the first song from the Massachusetts native’s new Chicago-themed covers EP called Postcards (From Chicago).
Postcards (from Chicago) will drop on July 26 through Acrobat Records/Crush Music via AWAL. The album will also feature Nathanson covers of songs by Fall Out Boy, Liz Phair, Cheap Trick, Richard Marx and Uncle Tupelo.
“Chicago has always been a magical place for me & my music,” Nathanson said in a statement. “Last summer, we had a few days off from tour in the Midwest and an ‘in’ at Wilco‘s legendary, bucket-list (!!!) LOFT recording studio in Chicago.”
“So I hatched a plan: I would record a love letter to the windy city,” he added. “An EP of my favorite songs by artists associated with the rich musical history of Chicago. My friends, I present: Postcards (from Chicago) – out 7/26,”
The EP is available for a limited time on 10″, orange vinyl. The singer has also announced couple of shows in nearby Evanston, Illinois, on release day, which will feature EP songs, other Chicago covers and some of his own originals.
