Haunted Summer unveiled a cover of Daniel Johnston’s “You Put My Love Out The Door” and released its accompanying video.
The track is off the band’s forthcoming Whole, which is slated for release in June via Rain Phoenix’s label, LaunchLeft. Haunted Summer is comprised of husband-and-wife songwriting duo Bridgette Eliza Moody and John Seasons. Whole will be the couple’s first long-play album since their 2017 sophomore release.
The “You Put My Love Out The Door” video was directed by Geoff Ryan and was filmed oceanside in Point Arena, California, which happens to be the furthest point west in the lower 48 states. “We wanted it to feel like you were in another world,” Seasons said. “We were truly blessed with the weather playing a starring role in the video — giving us all aspects of its beauty.”
“I think the song speaks to the lyrical theme of the rest of the album where you confront the ones that have hurt you, either intentionally or not,” Phoenix said of Haunted Summer’s cover of “You Put My Love Out The Door.” “You don’t necessarily need an apology or even a reply, but just speaking your own piece gives you peace. And the fact that we were able to pull it together to release in time for Valentine’s Day made it even more special.”
Haunted Summer formed in 2012, and have since released two albums, Birth in 2014 and Spirit Guides in 2017.
