Earlier in the year H.C. McEntire delivered the beautifully crafted album Eno Axis. Full of swooning vocals and songs that felt like they were coming from the heart, the album cemented McEntire as a true force in songwriting. Now she’s back with a new cover of the Tammy Wynette track ” ‘Til I Get It Right” that will stun you even more.
Opening with a reeling pedal steel and these swirls of tone, McEntire rolls in and pulls you near with her emotional vocals. Hitting various spots within her timbre, the sincerity in her softer moments balances out the more hefty notes of her voice. The way in sounds like a love letter is masterful while she belts the song out like it’s her last. There’s a lot here for a cover song yet McEntire makes it her own and delivers it with a graceful approach.
The cover can be streamed on all streaming sites or purchased digitally on Bandcamp. Eno Axis is available on various formats from Merge Records. H.C. McEntire will perform from The Cat’s Cradle with a full band on December 17 as a live-stream event. Tickets are available from Noonchorus.
