Watch the Official Video for Lake Street Dive’s “Neighbor Song” featuring Madison Cunningham HERE

Today, just ahead of their Gather Round Sounds fall tour,  acclaimed pop/soul group Lake Street Dive shared a brand-new version of longtime fan favorite

“Neighbor Song,” featuring their friend and frequent touring mate, Madison Cunningham. On this special treatment of “Neighbor Song,” one of the band’s most beloved tunes and an undeniable live show highlight, Lake Street Dive’s lead vocalist Rachael Price and GRAMMY-winning singer-songwriter Cunningham trade verses and share gorgeous harmonies in sublime musical conversation. Listen HERE. The intimate, one-take studio performance was captured in the track’s official video, watch HERE.

Lake Street Dive on “Neighbor Song” and collaborating with Madison Cunningham:

“Madison Cunningham is an extremely special musician, the kind who can make a single note sound like music and who breathes life into every song that she comes into contact with. We feel so honored to have had her join us on one of our songs. We first recorded “Neighbor Song” in 2010, shortly after a few of us had moved to Brooklyn. The song narrates an experience, all too familiar to many New York City apartment dwellers, of overhearing your neighbors making love. Involuntarily bearing witness to such intimacy inspires a potent mix of emotions from annoyance to despair to compassion. It’s a fun song to play live because we get to walk the audience through this emotional journey. Some audiences laugh a lot when we play it. Some cry a lot. In preparing to do this song on tour with Madison we came up with a new musical treatment for the song to bring out some different sides of those emotions. We recorded it with Madison in Brooklyn, live in one room in a single take. We hope it makes you laugh and/or cry!”

Set to hit cities across the South and Midwest, Lake Street Dive’s semi-acoustic, 2023 Gather Round Sounds Tour (with special guest Monica Martin), begins October 24 in Wilkes-Barre, PA. The 18-date run will feature fan favorites, deep cuts, and new material all presented in a relaxed, easy going, living room style setting.  The full tour routing is below. Find ticket information: HERE.  (Earlier this summer, Lake Street Dive collaborated with Martin on a lovely cover of the Elvis Presley classic, “Can’t Help Falling In Love” Listen to it HERE.)

Last year, Lake Street Dive, vocalist Rachael Price; bassist/background vocalist, Bridget Kearney; drummer/background vocalist, Mike Calabrese and keyboardist/vocalist, Akie Bermiss released their second collection of much-admired covers, Fun Machine: The Sequel. The 6-track EP ranged from R&B and pop favorites such as Dionne Warwick’s (Burt Bacharach/Hal David penned) classic “Anyone Who Had A Heart,” and The Pointer Sisters’ funky “Automatic,” to works by introspective singer-songwriters like The Cranberries’ gorgeous “Linger,” Carole King’s timeless “So Far Away,” Bonnie Raitt’s era-defining “Nick Of Time,” and Shania Twain’s resurgent pop-country anthem, “You’re Still The One.” The 9-track vinyl edition builds on the digital EP’s original tracks, adding three Beatles covers including the Lennon/McCartney classics “Dig A Pony,” “Two Of Us,” and “Don’t Let Me Down.” Purchase Fun Machine: The Sequel vinyl edition HERE.
