Portugal. The Man Shares Bill Withers Cover

Portugal. The Man released a cover of Bill Withers’ “Lovely Day.” The world learned of Withers' death on Friday.

“Lovely Day” is the opening track on the legendary singer-songwriter’s 1977 album, Menagerie. A statement from Portugal. The Man came along with their cover of the feel-good song. Read it below:

We did a cover of “Lovely Day”, we know it pales in comparison to the original but there is something special that happens when you learn how to play your favorite songs. We grew up listening to AM radio in remote Alaska and Bill Withers was one of the mainstays on those long drives to the grocery store. Bill’s music is imprinted in our DNA. It touches everything we do and we love him for the gifts he gave us. Bill will be missed but his music will live on forever.

Thank you Bill. We love you.
