Le Ren Teams with Big Thief's Buck Meek to Cover Gordon Lightfoot's "Early Morning Rain"
Published Feb 25, 2021With Big Thief's Buck Meek fresh off the release of his debut solo album Two Saviors and Montreal's Le Ren six months out from 2020's heart-wrenching Morning & Melancholia, the pair have now teamed up to cover Gordon Lightfoot's time-honoured classic "Early Morning Rain."
Releasing through Royal Mountain Records and Secretly Canadian, the duo have offered up an emotionally vulnerable, country-tinged rework of the 1966 original.
As Le Ren mastermind Lauren Spear explained in a statement, "To me, this song encapsulates missing someone. As many people are separated right now, it felt like the right moment to cover it."
She added: "Buck and I recorded it in two different countries across time and space so in turn, the production reflects the song itself."
