Paul Cauthen and Orville Peck have joined forces on a fun new project as “The Unrighteous Brothers” and released their debut via digital retailers. Proceeds from the collaboration will be donated to MusiCares, helping musicians with critical assistance in times of need.
The project finds the pair covering the legendary Righteous Brothers hits “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling” and “Unchained Melody,” which were produced by Beau Bedford and Butch Walker and recorded at the legendary RCA Studio A in Nashville.
“When I first heard Orville’s voice, I knew we’d sound good together,” said Cauthen. “I’ve always wanted to cover some Righteous Brothers tunes, but it took time to find the person I could pull it off with. I knew Butch and Beau would be perfect for this project. I pitched the idea to Orville and we were off to the races. I’m glad the world will finally get to hear The Unrighteous Brothers. Never knew the unrighteous could be so righteous and I’m damn lucky to be a part of it.”
Peck said, “I’ve been obsessed with Paul ever since I first heard his voice a year or two ago. I finally got to see him play while we were both on tour in Nashville and that’s when we first met. He has such a larger than life, soulful presence, so when they brought me the idea of us doing The Unrighteous Brothers, it was just a no-brainer.”
“The Unrighteous Brothers” will also be released as a limited edition 7-inch single for Record Store Day’s “RSD Drops” this Saturday (Sept. 26) via the New West Records distributed Lightning Rod Records.
