The Cover is available on Amazon Music and Amazon Music HD
Alt-country trio Puss N Boots have returned for an Amazon Original cover of Dolly Parton’s “The Grass is Blue (Amazon Original).” Comprised of acclaimed singer/songwriter Norah Jones on guitar, singer/bassist Catherine Popper and singer/guitarist Sasha Dobson, the track marks the group’s first new release in five years. “The Grass is Blue” is available now only on Amazon Music.
The track is also available to stream on Amazon Music HD, a new premium quality tier streaming audio from Amazon Music. Launched earlier today, Amazon Music HD provides customers with the best quality recording available for streaming, with more than 50 million songs in High Definition, and millions of songs in Ultra HD, the highest quality streaming audio available. Puss N Boots’ cover of “The Grass Is Blue” is available in Ultra HD, (better than CD quality), with a bit depth of 24 bits and a sample rate of 96 kHz.
“The first time I ever heard the Dolly Parton song ‘The Grass Is Blue,’ it slayed me,” states Jones. “It was probably the most beautiful song I’d ever heard. I’ve always loved the harmonies on Dolly’s version of the song. Sonically, the harmonies are just insanely beautiful.”
Popper continues, “I think what makes it shine is the lyrics. You can tell she’s feeling a lot of loss for someone. We actually all sat around, looking at each other and just talking about the lyrics with our jaws open.”
“I feel validated when I listen to ‘The Grass Is Blue,’ that I’m not alone, we’re not alone,” shares Dobson.
Puss n Boots first formed in 2008 as a live band performing around Brooklyn venues. After years of live performances, the trio decided to make a full-length album which resulted in their Blue Note Records debut No Fools, No Fun. The album was praised by Rolling Stone, Paste, American Songwriter and led to performances on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and CBS This Morning. The group also appeared at numerous festivals including the Clearwater Festival, Green River Festival, and the Newport Folk Festival and opened for Neil Young during his tour in July 2015.
Amazon Music listeners can find Norah Jones with Puss N Boots’ cover of Dolly Parton’s “The Grass is Blue” on the “Brushland” playlist, the global stage for today’s Americana fan. Customers can also simply ask, “Alexa play the Amazon Original by Norah Jones with Puss N Boots” in the Amazon Music app for iOS and Android and on Alexa-enabled devices. In addition to the new track, Amazon Music listeners can access hundreds of Amazon Originals featuring both emerging and established artists across numerous genres, available to stream and purchase only on Amazon Music.
