Rival Sons Release Acoustic Version Of “Shooting Stars”

Rival Sons have released an acoustic version of “Shooting Stars.” The original version of the track appears on the band’s latest album “Feral Roots.”

Jay Buchanan told American Songwriter the following:

“During this pandemic lockdown I got a request for this one solo acoustic. I went down the road to Dave Cobb’s, set my mics up outside, and tossed the cable ends into his studio doorway. The densely wooded holler was really reverberating my voice back to me on the louder parts of the song. You can hear the birds and the dog barking throughout. I left the cables, grabbed my mics and split after a couple passes. I think we had it on the first take, but one of those old twin prop planes flew low overhead so that was that. I’d rolled up a sock over the guitar mic to block out the breeze, but in the end my picking touch is just too light so I had to track some additional guitar back at my house. That inevitably led to a couple quick backing vocal passes which led to percussion, etc. It’s definitely got that home recording vibe.”
