Everything is better with friends! Right? The Funk Hunters certainly seem to live by that adage with their newest album, Music w/ Friends, featuring collaborations on every track. And you can truly feel the fun oozing from every note.
Big Gigantic, Dr. Fresch, Opiuo, Haywyre, Champagne Drip and more feature on remixes and originals throughout the album, plus an impressive cover of “Eleanor Rigby” to open the album up and set the tone.
“We worked on this really special cover of The Beatles iconic “Eleanor Rigby” with Will during Covid and have been waiting for summer festivals to return so we could play it live for everyone. So it feels really fitting to finally debut it on our new album, Music w/ Friends. Looking over the album tracklist makes us realize how blessed we are to have such an incredible group of friends, collaborators, and colleagues across our scene. There’s really nothing more satisfying than making music with your friends!”
