Angie McMahon Covers Tom Waits' “Take It With Me”
- Dualtone Music Group will celebrate the music of Tom Waits with the release of “Come On Up To The House: Women Sing Waits” on November 22nd.
This special collection features new renditions of Tom Waits’ classic songs, and some under-the-radar favorites, sung by an acclaimed group of remarkable artists. The project was produced by artist, author and composer Warren Zanes.
"Being a lifelong Waits fan, and interested in what it means to apply the female voice in particular to this catalog, I was on board right away," Warren Zanes told Billboard. "I've approached music from multiple angles, on many levels, but this is something I hadn't done before. I knew I was going to come out the other side having learned something, and that appeals to me."
From the album, Australian singer-songwriter Angie McMahon released “Take It With Me” on September 25th.
The song is included on Tom Waits' twelfth studio album “Mule Variations”, which was released in 1999.
Angie McMahon said, “I remember driving through the hills somewhere when I first heard this song. Someone played it for me and said, 'You just have to hear the final verse. It's the best verse ever written.’ I think I agree. It was actually terrifying to cover this because I love the original version so much. It's an incredibly beautiful recording. I just wanted to put my spin on my favorite Waits song so I could be part of this record too.”
To date, other two singles Patty Griffin "Ruby's Arms" and Courtney Marie Andrews "Downtown Train" were released from the album.
