Listen to Fraser A. Gorman’s Cover of ‘Blues Run the Game’
Australian singer-songwriter Fraser A. Gorman will drop his highly anticipated debut this summer, and in advance of its release, he premiered the single, “Broken Hands,” earlier this month. Now, he’s unveiled the song’s B-side, a cover of Jackson C. Frank’s “Blues Run the Game.” Listen below:
Gorman’s delicate indie-folk is complemented by fellow Melbourne artist Leah Senior’s vocal contribution on the new track, which has also been covered by the likes of Simon and Garfunkel, Nick Drake, Colin Meloy and Laura Marling -- among others. “Broken Hands” -- which you can hear in the video below -- and “Blues Run the Game” will be made available for purchase on April 6 via Marathon Artists/House Anxiety.
Gorman belongs to Melbourne-based garage rocker Courtney Barnett’s label, Milk! Records, and he will join the singer on her upcoming European tour; check out a full list of dates here. Gorman even appears in Barnett’s video for “Pedestrian at Best,” a track from her recently released debut, Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit.
