The Felice Brothers have shared “Patti,” the second song to be featured from Simone Felice’s contribution to Amazon Music’s “Produced By” series. The track is the first to showcase the folk-rock act’s newly reconstituted lineup as a four-piece with Jesske Hume on bass and features guest vocals from Conor Oberst, Phoebe Bridgers and Wesley Schultz of The Lumineers.
“My brother Ian wrote this beautiful song a few years back about our mother, her strength, struggles and sacrifice,” explained Simone Felice. “For one reason or another it never ended up on an album so this project presented a welcome opportunity to give this special cut, which had become a staple of the Brothers live shows, a proper life in the record realm. As luck would have it, Conor and Wes were in the Catskills the same week we planned to record ‘Patti,’ and everyone’s become friends over the years, so it felt the natural thing to do to ask them both to guest on the track. Growing up we loved bands with several different unique lead singers: The Beatles, The Band, Beastie Boys, Traveling Wilburys (the first tape I ever owned).” Stream a portion of the track below and head to Amazon Music to purchase:
