Audio: Trey Anastasio – Clint Eastwood

We’re about a week away from the release of Trey Anastasio’s latest solo album – Traveler. When the tracklist came out the biggest surprise was the inclusion of a cover of Clint Eastwood by Gorillaz.

Anastasio explained how the track made the album in a recent interview

Everyone in TAB was incredibly involved—they laid the foundation for most of the songs and brought their own unique touches. Jennifer [Hartswick], for example, just kills it on [Gorillaz’s] “Clint Eastwood.” She was sitting on the floor and we handed her a microphone and she ripped that thing off in one take. That track shows off Tony [Markellis] and Russ [Lawton], too. They are masters of the slow and low. If you listen to the bass line, it’s pretty epic. I was a little bit hesitant because it’s such an iconic song to cover, but Peter saw TAB do it live and said, “we’ve gotta do that tune.”

Now, you can hear the version of Clint Eastwood from Traveler…

Traveler hits stores on October 16th.

  1. If you’re going to put a cover on a record – especially of such a well-known song – it’s gotta be notable for one reason or another. This version is pretty ho-hum. Kinda can’t believe it made the cut for the album.
