Early last month Yak shared new single All I Need is Some Sunshine in My Life, a cover of an old 1965 gospel classic by the The Dixie Nightingales’.
This was the trio’s first release on the Maccabbees-afilliated Yala! Records and premiered on Annie Mac’s Hottest Record on Radio 1 last month. Speaking of the inspiration to do the cover Yak frontman Oli Burslem explained how, “A loved one departed and on the way out sent me this song, so we ended up recording a delirious version in the blistering heat of Perth.” Comparing the track to the Wendy Rene’s lovely After Laughter, Oli Burslem added, “I love the original Dixie Nightingales’ version, it reminds me of songs like Wendy Rene’s ‘After Laughter’, which I imagined was recorded in the same studio with maybe even the same people playing.” I really like this..check it out above.
