Molly Tuttle Shares Rolling Stones’ Cover ‘She’s A Rainbow’
Next Friday, August 28, Singer-songwriter Molly Tuttle will release the covers collection …But I’d Rather Be With You through Compass Records. Tuttle unveiled her take on The Rolling Stones’ “She’s A Rainbow” from the 10-track LP as well as an accompanying all-star video.
Molly used the video for the song from the Stones’ 1967 album Their Satanic Majesties Request as a chance to share her philosophy that feminism and the fight for equality will take the efforts of everyone. Tuttle asked a number of her friends and fans of every gender to appear in the video including Tom Morello, Sierra Hull, Nathaniel Rateliff, Chris Shiflett and Linda Perry.
“I embarrassingly couldn’t name 10 songs by The Rolling Stones,” Tuttle said in a statement. “I have never been super into classic rock, to be honest. That being said, I heard this song and fell in love with it. I thought it would be fun to do a version from the female perspective. I don’t know what The Rolling Stones had in mind when they sang this one, but for me it’s a love song to all feminine beings. She comes in colors everywhere, she’s like a rainbow!! YES!”
…But I’d Rather Be With You was produced with Tony Berg and features such session musicians as drummer Matt Chamberlain and keyboardist Patrick Warren. Molly’s forthcoming covers collection includes renditions of songs by the Grateful Dead, Yusuf/Cat Stevens, Rancid, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The National and more.
