Coming out March 17 via Ramseur Records, Seth Avett & Jessica Lea Mayfield Sing Elliott Smith was a labor of love for the two artists. Recorded over the last three years at Echo Mountain Studios and in Avett’s and Mayfield’s homes, the album celebrates the distinct and introspective stylings of Elliott Smith’s work.
“For Jessica and I, it was just a question of loving the songs and just genuinely loving singing,” said Avett in a video that documents the making of the album. “They’re so good that there is just a joy in singing them.”
The track list for Seth Avett & Jessica Lea Mayfield Sing Elliott Smith is as follows:
1. Between the Bars

3. Fond Farewell
4. Somebody That I Used to Know
5. Let’s Get Lost
7. Ballad of Big Nothing
8. Angel in the snow
