Good morning to you I hope you're feeling better, baby Thinking of me while you are far away Counting the days until they set you free again Writing this letter, hoping you're okay Saved you the room you used to stay in every Sunday The one that is warmed by sunshine every day And we'll get to know each other for a second time And then you can tell me 'bout your prison stay Feels so good you're coming home soon It's gonna to be good to have you back again with me Watching the laughter play around your eyes Come up and fetch you, saved up for the train fare money Kiss and make up and it will be so nice Feels so good you're coming home soon Walking the way we used to walk And it could be so nice We're talking the way we used to talk And it could be so nice It's gonna be good to have you back again with me Watching the laughter play around your eyes Come up and fetch you, saved up for the train fare money Kiss and make up and it will be so nice Feels so good you're coming home soon Feels so good you're coming home soon

Everybody needs somebody Even if it’s only me Stops your crying sweet peas And try to go to sleep I don’t know how you got here I don’t know if you cares You could have come from heaven Or a typhoon anywhere Well me I came from heaven Of Catalina lagoon And I was told me mammy Gave me up in a typhoon So don't you cry, little Swee'pea You and me, we’re both the same And the biggest tear I ever seen Came from the eye of a hurricane Go to sleep, sleep sleepy Now tell me what you see And someday when you are older I'll tell you all about me...

I know you I care too I see through All of the pictures that you keep on the wall All of the people that will come to the ball But hear me calling, won't you give me A free ride? Hear me calling, won't you give me A free ride? I know too What you do When you're through Counting the cattle as they go by the door Keeping the carpet that's so thick on the floor But hear me calling, won't you give me A free ride? Hear me calling, won't you give me A free ride? I know you I care too I see through All of the pictures that you keep on the wall All of the people that will come to the ball But hear me calling, won't you give me A free ride? Hear me calling, won't you give me A free ride?

BELLE GHOUL are releasing a digital single that includes three marvelous covers taken from different recording sessions, and that show the duo’s – formed by Christopher Tait (ELECTRIC SIX) and Jesse Smith (the daughter of Patti Smith and Fred “Sonic” Smith, from MC5) – calling to become classics, and that they emanate a certain magical halo influenced by the wintry seasons.

To start things off we have “Care Of Cell 44” by THE ZOMBIES, one of the starting points and musical coincidences between Jesse and Chris, as they themselves have said. Psychedelic pop made for a piano, with heavenly choruses à la BEACH BOYS, brushing up at some points against LOVIN’ SPOONFUL. Recorded in Tree Laboratory (Brooklyn) by Eric Hoegemeyer for Halloween night 2013, this song switches between a mystery and a luminosity that give it an unmistakable air of Christmas.

“Free Ride” was originally recorded during the sessions for “Saturday Knife Fight” and was finished in the Rust Belt Studios, for a tribute to Nick Drake that was ultimately never released. Luckily, the song is rescued here for us to enjoy in all of its solemnity, far from the intimacy of the original, with a more ambient touch but just as melancholy.

“Swee’Pea’s Lullaby” was also recorded for another Halloween night, this time in 2012, by Zach Shipps, but the truth is that this version of the song that Harry Nilsson sang for the “Popeye” soundtrack, with that drum machine and that keyboard that seem like they’re counting snowflakes falling between Christian Doble’s sweet, nighttime sax and Casemir&Casemir’s choruses, fills us with sweet excitement. What’s more, this recording is accompanied by a curious little anecdote: The bass was recorded with Matt Van on a completely acoustic 1963 Fender Precision with a mike in front of it and the signal was so delicate that Matt had to hold his breath while he played… the whole song. Now that’s dedication!

It’s a great gift for BELLE GHOUL’s ever-growing fan base. And we’re sure it will keep on growing!
