Waxahatchee Covers Woody Guthrie’s ‘Talking Dust Bowl Blues’

    Waxahatchee has shared a cover of Woody Guthrie’s ‘Talking Dust Bowl Blues’ as part of an upcoming tribute album celebrating the late singer-songwriter’s 1940 record Dust Bowl Ballads. The collection, out September 10, was curated by Grammy-winning music supervisor and producer Randall Poster and features contributions from Lee Ann Womack, John Paul White, Mark Lanegan, Lillie Mae, Chris Thile, Watkins Family Hour, and more. It’s called Home In This World: Woody Guthrie’s Dust Bowl Ballads. Listen to Waxahatchee’s version of ‘Talking Dust Bowl Blues’ below.

    Last year, Katie Crutchfield teamed up with Hurray for the Riff Raff and Bedouine for a cover of Big Star’s ‘Thirteen’. Back in March, she took on Lucinda Williams’ ‘Fruits of My Labor’, Dolly Parton’s ‘Light of a Clear Blue Morning’, and Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Streets of Philadelphia’ for the expanded edition of her latest album Saint Cloud.
