The String Cheese Incident released a studio version of “Windy Mountain” today. The Bill Nershi-penned song dates back over two decades and was recorded during the sessions that yielded the band’s latest album, 2023’s Lend Me A Hand.

“Windy Mountain” was debuted live by The String Cheese Incident on July 19, 2001. The song has been played 77 times since with the most recent performance delivered on September 20, 2023 at Rose Music Center in Huber Heights, Ohio.

Lend Me A Hand arrived last September and marked the band’s first album in six years. The follow-up to 2017’s Believe was produced by Brad Cook and included reflections on the unexpected loss of close friend and longtime member of SCI management team Jesse Aratow.

“I actually lived in a miner’s cabin in a little town above Boulder with my family for a couple of years,” explained Bill Nershi of the Lend Me A Hand bonus track. “It was built in the 1890s. The old spirits still reside there. They gave me the gift of this song.”
