Sweet & Hoffs Covers Album: Dead, Mac, Beatles & More

Featuring Special Guests Lindsay Buckingham, Dhani Harrison and Steve Howe
In Stores July 21

Matthew Sweet
Power-pop sensation Matthew Sweet and Bangles vocalist Susanna Hoffs, otherwise known as "Sid & Susie," will unveil their newest project July 21 on Shout! Factory, titled Under The Covers Vol. 2. This delightful collection features 16 of the duo's favorite tunes from the 1970's, and is the much anticipated follow up to the highly-praised 60's compilation Under The Covers Vol. 1, released in 2006.

Produced and recorded by Sweet and Hoffs in Sweet's Lolina Green Studios in Los Angeles, Sweet and Hoffs treat the songs with reverence, showing their appreciation for this captivating decade of music. Under The Covers Vol. 2 features the pair's perfectly harmonized voices on favorites from the genres of power-pop, glam, classic rock and even prog-rock. The pair get a little help from Lindsey Buckingham on their cover of Fleetwood Mac's "Second Hand News," Dhani Harrison plays on George Harrison's "Beware of Darkness," and Steve Howe guests on their version of the Yes song "I've Seen All Good People: Your Move/All Good People."

Matthew and Susanna have long performed at each other's shows, and collaborated with comedian Mike Myers as members of Austin Powers' on-screen band Ming Tea in Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery and Austin Powers in Goldmember before collaborating on Under The Covers Vol. 1. Matthew and Susanna will have a number of tour dates to support the release in addition to separate shows by both Matthew Sweet and the Bangles.
