Clutch Release New Version Of 'Spacegrass'
(hennemusic) Clutch are streaming a new recording of their 1995 track, "Spacegrass", as the latest single in their ongoing Weathermaker Vault Series.
The song - which originally appeared on the Maryland band's self-titled second album - remains a key tune in their catalog and is regularly featured in their live sets.
"The lyrics got their start originally from something [guitarist] Tim [Sult] wrote," says frontman Neil Fallon. "It involved a Dodge Swinger and Jesus. I added some words and one of them was 'AstroTurf,' but that had one too many syllables. So I changed it to 'Spacegrass' - and the rest is history."
The fifth song in Clutch's new series of digital singles follows covers of classic cuts originally recorded by Willie Dixon, ZZ Top and Creedence Clearwater Revival, and a reworked version of their own 2007 tune, "Electric Worry." Listen to both versions of the song here.
