Joe Wong and Mary Timony have released a new cover of John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s song “Every Man Has A Woman Who Loves Him” as a 40th anniversary celebration for Lennon and Ono’s album Double Fantasy. Dave Fridmann of The Flaming Lips mixed Wong and Timony’s version of the track.
Wong and Timony create a psychedelic soundscape with deep vocals and transcending synths. Wong slowly sings Lennon’s lyrics, creating a haunting sound that pulls listeners into an alternate dimension. Drums slowly beat beneath to create a softer sound, the track continuing to have an edge within its instrumentals. Timony provides slithering back-up vocals as she and Wong dance and sway amid the plucking guitars and deep bass.
“The song has always felt haunting and profound to me, and is an under appreciated song in the Ono/Lennon oeuvre,” Wong said in a press statement. “Although the song was recorded during the week of Lennon’s 80th birthday (last month), the track continues to inhabit my dreams, and that’s a good thing.
