New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Mountain Man - the trio of Amelia Meath, Alexandra Sauser-Monnig, and Molly Sarlé - has released Mountain Man Sings Neil Young, the latest in its series of cover singles, featuring its version of "Through My Sails," from Young's 1975 album, Zuma. The digital single follows previous editions in the Mountain Man Sings series, which includes the band's versions of the Shaker hymn "Simple Gifts," Kacey Musgraves' "Slow Burn," Wilco's "You and I," John Denver's "Take Me Home, Country Roads," and the Irving Berlin holiday classic "White Christmas." In August 2020, Nonesuch released Mountain Man's live album, Look at Me Don't Look at Me, recorded in November 2018 at Saint Mark's Cathedral in Seattle.

"Neil Young has been a pillar of the soundtrack along the Mountain Man road from Vermont to the windy ocean roads of California," says the trio. "'Through My Sails' is such a gentle secret at the end of Zuma and it felt immediately natural and right sinking into the harmonies of Neil Young with Crosby, Stills and Nash."

Mountain Man's Nonesuch debut album, Magic Ship, was released in 2018 to critical acclaim. Following their beloved 2010 debut, Made the Harbor, the three musicians went in different directions for several years before they all ended up in North Carolina, spending time together as old friends, and finally reuniting as a band, and recording Magic Ship at Meath's home studio in Durham. The group toured the US afterward, including a stop in Washington, DC, and a visit to NPR's Tiny Desk Concert series.

In addition to Meath's Grammy-nominated work with Sylvan Esso, which released a new album last month, Sauser-Monnig and Sarlé have recorded their own critically acclaimed solo projects. Sauser-Monnig released Dawnbreaker, her debut album under the moniker Daughter of Swords, via Nonesuch last year. Pitchfork says the album "reveals her effortless skill as a songwriter as she delivers an homage to the betwixt and between of a relationship in its twilight." Sarlé released Karaoke Angel last year via Partisan Records.
