Fresh off their North American tour dates, The Funk Hunters head into summer 2022 showing their penchant for musical camaraderie with their aptly titled album, Music with friends. The project includes collaborations with Big Gigantic, Dr. Fresch, Opiuo, Haywyre, Champagne Drip, and above all a collaboration with KillWill for a new version of the Beatles’ iconic “Eleanor Rigby”.
Funk Hunters and KillWill’s “Eleanor Rigby” is a dance production that mirrors the timeless Beatles original. A cinematic slow-burn with rapid crescendos and lingering vocal prose, this “Eleanor Rigby” rendition is nothing short of mesmerizing. The main track of the album, The Funk Hunters’ Music with friends continues to explore a myriad of styles and soundscapes through heartfelt collaborations designed to liven up dance floors, festival main stages and lounge lounging.
Speaking on the track, the Funk Hunters said: “We’ve been working on this really special Beatles cover the iconic “Eleanor Rigby” with Will during Covid and waiting for summer festivals to return so we can play it live for everyone. So it really seems fitting to finally debut it on our new album, Music w/ Friends. As we scroll through the album’s track listing, we realize how blessed we are to have such an amazing group of friends, collaborators, and colleagues on our stage. There really is nothing more satisfying than making music with your friends!
