The Pretty Reckless release ‘Harley Darling’ acoustic version

Other Worlds arrives Nov 4th

The Pretty Reckless has released an acoustic version of “Harley Darling.” The track is the latest from their forthcoming Other Worlds release featuring a new collection of material on November 4th via Fearless Records.

The Pretty Reckless dressed down this favorite from Death By Rock And Roll to its bare essence with a stirring and striking acoustic performance.

“‘Harley Darling’ is a love letter to Kato Khandwala,” says frontwoman Taylor Momsen. “It’s as simple as that. So many of us have stories of losing loved ones, especially now, and I hope this song can be used in other’s healing as it was in my own.”

The band previously shared the video for “Got So High.”

The new record collates striking acoustic renditions of personal favorites accompanied by some very special guests. The recording of Elvis Costello’s “(What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding” served as Momsen’s first cover originally performed for the Fearless at Home livestream in the midst of COVID. As another pandemic-era cover, Matt Cameron played guitar and sang as Taylor powered an airy and lithe reimagining of Soundgarden’s “Halfway There” from King Animal, generating hundreds of thousands of views on its initial post. Iconic multi-instrumentalist, producer, and artist Alain Johannes handled guitar on The Pretty Reckless’ pensive and poetic interpretation of “The Keeper,” originally by Chris Cornell, while David Bowie pianist Mike Garson performed a stirring piano movement for The Thin White Duke’s “Quicksand.”
