The Funk Hunters have released their collaborative album, Music w/ Friends today. The album drops alongside their cover of The Beatles’ “Eleanor Rigby” with KillWill. Listen to the album now below.
Primed for festival mainstages and long summer days to boot, The Funk Hunters and KillWill’s “Eleanor Rigby” is a dance-powered production reflecting the timeless original by The Beatles. Showcasing their penchant for artistic synchronicity, the Canadian duo prepare fans for an electrifying never-before-heard reinvention.
Of the cover, The Funk Hunters said, “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!”
The Funk Hunters launch into Summer 2022 showcasing their musical highs with the hotly anticipated album, Music w/ Friends. A 17-track collaborative project surveying a wide range of genres spanning house, bass, future-funk, and more, the Canadian duo assemble a vibrant discography of collaborators and artist friends including industry leaders Big Gigantic, Dr. Fresch, Opiuo, Haywyre, Champagne Drip and more.
