Inspired by Cee Lo’s viral smash cover of No One’s Gonna Love You, Band of Horses have teamed with the University of Georgia Redcoat Marching Band for their own unique take on Georgia, the recently leaked track from Cee Lo’s forthcoming Lady Killer album.
Ben Bridwell explains the genesis of the cover: "This began as a very random idea I had on my dad's patio after we watched our beloved Georgia Bulldog football team get robbed of a win at the hands of the referees and LSU last year. I knew I wanted to pay homage to my favorite team in song but didn't have any idea how to begin. Once I heard Cee-Lo's Georgia, I was immediately smitten and figured that's as good as any tribute to any state I've ever heard.”
The band went on to record the song with the UGA Redcoat Marching Band, and the track is now available digitally at www.bandofhorses.com/Georgia. At the same site, there is a pre-order available for a split 7” featuring BOH’s take on Georgia and Cee Lo’s take on No One’s Gonna Love You, along with a t-shirt featuring BOH and Georgia-themed artwork!
