New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Alt-country trio Puss N Boots have returned for an Amazon Original cover of Dolly Parton's "The Grass is Blue". Comprised of acclaimed singer/songwriter Norah Jones
on guitar, singer/bassist Catherine Popper, and singer/guitarist Sasha
Dobson, the track marks the group's first new release in five years. "The Grass is Blue" is available now only on Amazon Music
via Blue Note Records/Universal Music.
"The first time I ever heard the Dolly Parton
song 'The Grass is Blue', it slayed me," stated Jones. "It was probably the most beautiful song I'd ever heard. I've always loved the harmonies on Dolly's version, they're just insanely gorgeous."
Popper continued, "I think what makes it shine is the lyrics. You can tell she's feeling a lot of loss for someone. We actually all sat around, looking at each other and just talking about the lyrics with our jaws open."
"I feel validated when I listen to 'The Grass is Blue,' that I'm not alone, we're not alone," said Dobson.
Puss n Boots first formed in 2008 as a live band performing around Brooklyn venues. After years of live performances, the trio decided to make a full-length album which resulted in their Blue Note Records debut No Fools, No Fun. The album was praised by Rolling Stone, Paste, American Songwriter and led to performances on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon
and CBS This Morning. The group also appeared at numerous festivals including the Clearwater Festival, Green River Festival, and the Newport Folk Festival and opened for Neil Young
during his tour in July 2015.
