Orville Peck shares stripped-back acoustic version of Summertime
An even more lonesome version of the song.
Orville Peck has shared a stripped-back, unplugged rendition of his song Summertime. Take a look above.
The video features Peck, along with pianist Duncan Jay Hennings, performing the song in a two-person arrangement – providing a sharp contrast to the orchestral, grand original version. This version lays Peck’s deep baritone bare, bringing a new angle to the song’s lonely mood. The lyrics themselves explore the all-too-pertinent theme of longing, with Peck singing: “Trying to keep your eyes on something along the rise / You and I –bide our time / And I miss summertime.”
The song’s original version was released at the beginning of this month, marking Peck’s first new music since his 2019 debut record, Pony, which introduced the world to his idiosyncratic take on country music, along with his intriguing masked persona.
