Acclaimed pop/soul group Lake Street Dive celebrates the summer solstice by sharing a gorgeous, sun-kissed version of the Elvis Presley classic, “Can’t Help Falling In Love” featuring rising singer-songwriter Monica Martin.
Lake Street Dive on “Can’t Help Falling In Love” Featuring Monica Martin:
“When we were preparing to tour together with Monica, we were dying to perform a song with her at the center. She brought in the idea of “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” so we worked up this arrangement on the road to fit the acoustic intimacy of the tour’s namesake— ‘Gather Round Sounds.’ The recording is done the same way; all six of us completely live in one room with no headphones. You can hear every little breath and the closeness of Monica, Rachael, and Akie singing together. What a joy to perform this timeless classic with the timeless Monica Martin!”
Monica Martin concurs:
“We sang this every night on tour at the top of their encore, and it was such a dream, we had to cut it to record!”
