The Pretty Reckless singer Taylor Momsen has released a cover of Woody Guthrie’s classic folk song “This Land Is Your Land.” Momsen released the track and an accompanying video on July 4th.
Guthrie wrote the tune in 1940 and released it in 1945.
Momsen teased the release of the track, which features a sparse acoustic musical arrangement, earlier in the week on her official Facebook page with an image of a candle on a studio mixing console. The video features photos taken by producer Kato Khandwala, who died tragically from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident earlier this year. Khandwala produced all three LPs by The Pretty Reckless.
A couple of days after Khandwala’s death, Momsen paid tribute to the producer, calling him “our ringleader” and “our confidant” and saying that “nothing will be the same without him.”
The Pretty Reckless’s third album, Who You Selling For, was released in October 2016. It contained the chart-topping “Take Me Down” as well as the Number Two rock radio hit “Oh My God.”
