Singer/Songwriter Kori Withers Releases Remake of Father Bill Withers' Celebrated Classic "Ain't No Sunshine" from Forthcoming Album Melting
By: Kori Withers
Kori's reimagined version of "Ain't No Sunshine" relocates the classic soul ballad in futuristic, synth-play territory, rebellious in its re-harmonization yet respectful of the original melody. Of it, she says "the recording happened completely by accident, and I love it." The cover precedes a collection of original songs that she wrote for the new album which she will be periodically releasing in the coming months.
Inspiration for MELTING was drawn from the singers' travels and life experiences. "I love traveling and performing,"
For the vast majority of the album, Kori worked with Grammy-winning producer Scott Jacoby out of his Eusonia Studios in Manhattan, and she cites his broad experience as being invaluable to the project. "Scott has encyclopedic knowledge," she states. "He understood all the references implied in my writing and knew how to execute them without covering up the originality. Once I realized that, I just kept bringing in songs. Being heartbroken in New York City didn't hurt either. I needed an outlet."
"Ain't No Sunshine" is available now on most leading digital platforms and will be followed by new remixes and singles in 2019; the full album MELTING will be released in 2019.
