SUSANNA HOFFS – ” The Deep End “

Posted: March 9, 2023 in MUSIC

Susanna Hoffs of the Bangles has released a cover of the Stones’ “Under My Thumb” from her upcoming album, “The Deep End”.

The covers LP, which was produced by Peter Asher, features 13 songs made famous by the Stones, Squeeze and Leslie Gore, as well as more recent artists like Billie Eilish, Ed Sheeran and Brandy Clark. “The Deep End” will be released on April 7th, just a few days after Hoffs publishes her debut novel, This Bird Has Flown.

“I’ve listened to that song on repeat since it came out in the mid-’60s,” Hoffs said in a press release. “I had an epiphany when I really thought about what the song is about, and it ignited this idea to do my own spin on it — to change the gender and see how it felt. What if the roles are/were reversed and the boy is under her thumb? It was exhilarating to give it a new spin, to flip it on its head, or on its ass. It’s a sassy, irreverent song, so it was extremely pleasurable to turn the tables.”

Backing the Bangles co-founder on the track are famous sidemen, guitarist Waddy Wachtel, bassist Leland Sklar, drummer Russ Kunkel and backing singer Ledisi, plus Jeff Alan Ross on vibes and a string quartet arranged by Steve Aho.
