Willy Mason Covers Townes Van Zandt On Hawk

Videos by American Songwriter

We here at the American Songwriter news desk love us some Willy Mason. And of course we love Townes Van Zandt (enough to devote a cover story to him).

Listen to the young folkie from Massachusetts cover Van Zandt’s redemption song “No Place To Fall” below. The track appears on Hawk, the upcoming album from Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan, due August 24 on V2. Campbell sings harmonies on “No Place To Fall.”

“You got pretty eyes, won’t you spin me ’round.
I’m not much of a lover, it’s true
I’m here then I’m gone and I’m forever blue,
But I’m sure wanting you.”
