Songs:Illinois favorite and former “S:I House Concert Series” performer Peter Mulvey has a new album and a companion EP out at the end of March. These are a slight departure as they are both cover records. The lp has songs written by Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen, Jolie Holland, Chris Smither and Duke Ellington. The companion EP is called Chaser.
Here’s “It’s Lonely At The Top” by Randy Newman from Chaser. Peter Mulvey’s record release show is this Thursday at Schubas in Chicago – he’ll have both records for sale at the show.
