Vancouver, BC – Their first major announcement of 2022, The Funk Hunters enlist KillWill for a future-forward cover of The Beatles’ “Eleanor Rigby” released in conjunction with their forthcoming collaborative album Music w/ Friends dropping the same day – Friday, July 22nd.
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.
"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!”
