13 December 2021, 15:05 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Kevin Morby has unveiled his version of Bill Fay's "I Hear You Calling", which is part of a special 7" single cover series.

After Steve Gunn's version of Fay's "Dust Filled Room" was shared last month, Kevin Morby's cover of Fay's Time of the Last Persecution song "I Hear You Calling" has been released.

Speaking about Fay, Morby said, "Bill Fay exists as a secret handshake amongst us musicians. Those of us familiar with his body of work are obsessed with it. When I first heard him, years ago, I felt as if I was rediscovering something I had lost and had long been looking for. It’s an honour to be able to cover one of my favourite songs of his."

Morby's version of "I Hear You Calling" will be released with Gunn's cover in January alongside Still Some Light Part 1, a double compilation album featuring 70s album demos and 2009 home recordings.

Kevinn Morby's cover of "I Hear You Calling" is out on digital platforms now. Bill Fay's Still Some Light Part 1 will follow on 14 January 2022 via Dead Oceans, and is available to pre-order now.
