Hootie and the Blowfish have released a cover of R.E.M.’s “Losing My Religion,” available to stream and purchase exclusively on Amazon Music.
During their 2019 reunion tour, Hootie and the Blowfish covered R.E.M.’s No. 1 hit “Losing My Religion,” and R.E.M.’s Mike Mills also joined them onstage in New York City for a couple of numbers.
“When we were cutting our teeth as a band, almost every night fans would hear us on stage covering R.E.M.,” says lead singer Darius Rucker. “‘Losing My Religion’ is a song that when you first listen to it, you can feel the struggle, the back-and-forth.” “We’re releasing it as a cover with Amazon Music because I think it’s still as thrilling to people today as it was when it was first released,” he adds.
