Rising Appalachia – the duo co-led by sisters Leah Song and Chloe Smith – announced a new album, Folk And Anchor, consisting of covers of their favorite songs. Set for release on May 17, Folk And Anchor features the newly available single, “The Bones.”

Singer-songwriter Maren Morris originally recorded “The Bones” for her 2019 album GIRL, with fellow singer-songwriter Hozier featured on the track. The Folk And Anchor tracklist also sees Rising Appalachia putting their spin on songs by Bob Dylan, Erykah Badu, Willie Nelson, Lord Huron, James Blake with Bon Iver and Beyoncé’s recent smash hit “Texas Hold ‘Em.”


“We grew up immersed in a musical family, and our songwriting and performance has been deeply influenced by so many Americana genres over the years,” Leah Song stated. “We wanted to create a body of work where all those influences could be showcased under one roof … [The songs] tell a story together, and that story weaves the listener into the sonic tapestries of the roots of Rising Appalachia.”

Stream “The Bones,” and the previously-released Folk And Anchor single, Bob Dylan’s “I Shall Be Released,” below:
