BRIGHT EYES – ” Running Back ” Thin Lizzy Cover

Posted: January 15, 2022 in MUSIC

The band originally recorded the cover of “Running Back” in August 2020 as part of a SiriusXM Sessions, Now the cover has been given an official release as part of Secretly Canadian’s ongoing 25th anniversary singles series, which aims to raise $250,000 for New Hope For Families.

Bright Eyes’ Conor Oberst said of the cover, “Thin Lizzy is one of the finest rock n roll bands of all time. Phil Lynott’s vocal delivery and lyrics exemplify nonchalant cool. On top of that they gave the world a reason to invent the word guitarmonies. I think this is such a beautiful love song. It felt really good to sing.”
