Noah Kahan Covers Jason Isbell's “If We Were Vampires” featuring Wesley Schultz
American singer-songwriter Noah Kahan released a cover of American singer-songwriter Jason Isbell's “If We Were Vampires” along with a live performance video on May 10, 2023.
The song is a part of the Spotify Singles series. This time, he teamed up with American folk rock band The Lumineers' Wesley Schultz on the track.
The original version of the song is featured on Jason Isbell's sixth studio album “The Nashville Sound”, which was released in 2017.
The cover version was produced by Gabe Simon and Noah Kahan. The accompanying live video was filmed in Denver.
Noah Kahan said, “Getting a chance to perform one of the greatest songs ever with one of my biggest influences ever was one of the highlights of my life. I grew up rewatching every live performance The Lumineers had done, so mesmerized by their sound and their storytelling. I wish I could tell myself back then that I would actually get the chance to sing a song with Wesley in his hometown. I would have been so shocked. However, that shock would have turned to disbelief if I could have told myself I'd be able to record with Wes, singing one of Isbell's masterpieces.”
- He continued, “'If We Were Vampires' is a song about time, aging, and what true love really is. It's a song that has meant a lot to me ever since my mom played it for me on a road trip years ago. Hearing Wes sing with me on this Spotify Single version is a bucket list item crossed off. So grateful to Wes for being a part of it, Gabe Simon for helping bring it to life, and to Spotify for giving me the opportunity. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.”
