Later this summer, rising singer-songwriters Hovvdy and Lomelda are heading out for a co-headlining tour around the Midwest. The 10-date run kicks off in Missouri this August, but ahead of that, they've cooked up a new joint EP for your listening pleasure. The project, aptly-titled Covers, features both acts covering the other. Particularly intriguing are Lomelda's submerged refraction of "Swing" and Hovvdy's saxophone-infused riff on "Out There."
Proceeds from the Covers EP, out today via Double Double Whammy, will benefit RAICES, a Texas-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit working to provide legal assistance to separated families, detained families, unaccompanied minors, and others seeking asylum in the United States. Stream the EP, and peep Lomelda and Hovvdy's upcoming tour dates, below.
