We recently reported on John Prine’s upcoming album of duets For Better, For Worse and his duet with Iris DeMent on “Who’s Gonna Take the Garbage Out.” Now, you may listen to another track on the album, “Color of the Blues.”
Susan Tedeschi joins Prine on the song. Check out their recording of “Color of the Blues,” which is played over a promotional video for the album.
The song about a lover’s letter on blue paper was written by George Jones and Lawton Williams. Jones released his original version of “Color of the Blues” on January 15, 1958.
Below is the original version by Jones.
Prine’s album For Better, Or Worse features duets with women artists such as Miranda Lambert, Kacey Musgraves, Lee Ann Womack, Holly Williams, and Alison Krauss. It hits stores and the Internet on September 30, 2016.
