Today we present a pretty sweet gift to Luke Temple and Curtis Mayfield fans alike. Listen to Luke Temple and Here We Go Magic bandmate, Eliot Krimsky (also of Glass Ghost) cover Curtis Mayfield‘s “Suffer” ABOVE or on YouTube HERE.
The cover, originally part of Temple’s live show, is an appropriate preview of Luke’s new solo album, Good Mood Fool out October 15th. The new album shows Temple at his most minimalistic utilizing only his voice, a drum machine, a bass guitar, and a Juno-1 synth to produce the soulful and sultry sounds of his fifth solo album.
On the song, Temple says, “It’s nice to remind – and in some cases introduce – an amazing song to people. Curtis makes your heart sing even if it’s a song about regret.”
