Here's what Chelsea had to say about the release:
My cover of the Gerry Beckley-penned America song "Sister Golden Hair" comes out today! I am so excited for you guys to hear it. Ross and I had so much fun making this recording, and it gave us a much needed project to focus on during the first part of the pandemic. Ross's layered piano arpeggios and his hands-down brilliant rhythmic muted piano parts are a big feature on this recording. I really wanted to convey the feeling of isolation and longing for the outside world that we were feeling, so I sang quite a bit softer than I normally do for a more intimate sound. Slowly but surely, this lonesome, haunted version of one of my favorite songs came together. I hope you enjoy our take on this gorgeous song!
