Brett Eldredge is continuing to show his range across different genres, releasing a beautiful live version of Billie Eilish’s staggering track “When The Party’s Over” (listen here). The audio was recorded live in Glasgow at the Old Fruitmarket Concert Hall where Eldredge and his band performed it for the very first time. He performed the song throughout his European tour, ultimately shooting the video at London’s O2 arena (watch here).
“I heard this song a year or two ago and I just love how unique of an artist she is and the complex nature of the songs she writes,” Eldredge explained. “I love how emotional and intense they are and could tell she had to grow up fast and really puts her life out there in her music. I think that’s a powerful thing to be that young and to have found your voice, and it speaks to people of all ages. For whatever reason, when people hear my cover of this song, I think they’d say to themselves ‘I didn’t see that coming at all’ but that’s exactly what I wanted because when I heard it I thought ‘Man, I could do something special with this.’ I’m so grateful for the song that she’s written here and grateful to be able to sing it.”
Earlier this month, Eldredge also shared the official music video for his fifth studio album’s emotional title track, “Sunday Drive” (watch here), telling People in an exclusive interview that of all the videos he’s made, “nothing has ever come close to the emotion of this” (read here). He also helped kick off the brand new season of Live with Kelly and Ryan with a performance of “Magnolia” as part of "Live's Labor Day Cookout" (watch here).
Debuting as the top-selling country album week of release, Sunday Drive was produced by GRAMMY-winning producers Daniel Tashian and Ian Fitchuk and marked Eldredge’s fifth Top 5 on the Top Country Albums chart. With its organic focus on sound and lyrics, the album has been hailed by Billboard as “his most compelling set yet, full of musical diversity and heart” and by Rolling Stone as “his best album,” with The Tennessean describing it as “a creative rebirth for one of modern country’s most soulful vocalists.” Earlier this year, the acclaimed vocalist shared a stripped-down performance of his current single “Gabrielle” on Late Night with Stephen Colbert (watch here).
Eldredge has committed to continuing the exploration of his heart, offering the world a raw look into his life and musical journey through Sunday Drive (The Documentary) (watch here). The short film takes viewers alongside the singer / songwriter from Nashville to his hometown of Paris, Illinois and then to Chicago, where he recorded the album. Directed by PJ Brown, the documentary features the friends, family, team members and collaborators who have made Eldredge the artist he is today.
