(Press Release) The Marcus King Band has released a new four-song collection titled Due North EP out now via Fantasy Records. The EP is now available for purchase and streaming at all major retailers.
The digital-only EP consists of three songs the band recorded during their sessions at The Carriage House Studio in Stamford, Connecticut, for their sophomore album, The Marcus King Band, with producer Warren Haynes, and a fourth live recording: an epic 15-minute medley of the band's "Sharry Barry," "Sliced Milk" (Jeff Sipe cover), "25 Or 6 To 4" (Chicago cover), "I'll Stay" (Funkadelic cover), and "Gloomy Sunday" (famously covered by Billie Holiday).
"The Due North EP is a love note from the band of words we didn't get to say," explains frontman Marcus King. "Songs that are a big part of our live repertoire that we would like to share with everyone. Also included is a recording of the 'Sharry Barry' medley from Chicago last winter to give a taste of MKB recorded live."
In addition to "Sharry Barry," the EP features two other original compositions, "What's Right" and "Slip Back," along with a cover of the Marshall Tucker Band's"This Ol' Cowboy."
