In the years since the hey day of Air Supply have there been many bands who lived up to their band’s name. Airy and light, the light rock group got big and then essentially disappeared as quickly as they rose. Keeping in line with a slew of cover song releases, Bill Callahan and Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy have released a cover of an Air Supply song. Utilizing the talents of Emmett Kelly, the song they cover is “Lost In Love.”
Opening with Callahan at the front, his vocals add weight to how the original sounded when it was released. Using an acoustic alongside his voice, the song is offered up with a different pacing. The way it plays out with Billy coming in as the two utilize Kelly’s guitar abilities. The end result is a cover of Air Supply that’s better than the original.
The song is ready to purchase directly from Drag City Records. It’s also available in all digital music stores or it can be streamed on all streaming sites.
