Aubrie Sellers Taps Steve Earle for Grungy New Duet, ‘My Love Will Not Change’ [LISTEN]
Aubrie Sellers gives a bluegrass song the rock treatment in her newest release, "My Love Will Not Change," featuring Steve Earle. Reconfigured as a searing, rock-throttled duet, the song is the next single to come off of Sellers' forthcoming sophomore album, Far From Home. Press play above to listen.
Originally released in in 2003 by bluegrass mainstays the Del McCoury Band, "My Love Will Not Change" was written by Billy Burnett and Shawn Camp -- though Sellers says she wishes she'd written the track. "I love bluegrass, and I thought it would be fun to bring a song with unmistakable mountain soul like this into my world a little bit. It's the only song I didn't write, but I wish I'd written it. I live for straightforward, emotionally driven writing like this," Sellers states in a press release.
The singer adds that Earle immediately stood out as someone who would help her nail down what she wanted her rendition of the song to sound like. "When I envisioned the sound for the track, I knew there was no one else who could do it like Steve," Sellers continues. "He has always been one of my favorite artists, and getting to sing with him is not only a major highlight, it's just plain bada--."
"My Love Will Not Change" is the second new release off of Far From Home; Sellers previously shared the first taste of the project, "Drag You Down," another hard-rocking and bitingly sharp track. The full record is due out on Feb. 7.
