Track Listing

News & Reviews

  • Mountain Man has released Mountain Man Sings Simple Gifts, the latest in its series of cover singles, featuring its version of the Shaker hymn. "'Simple Gifts' is one of those incredible songs that transforms you while you sing it,” says the trio. "It's like an incantation, and it was a joy to record."

  • The members of Mountain Man met up quasi-virtually—with Amelia Meath and Alexandra Sauser-Monnig together in one sun-soaked location and Molly Sarlé joining from another—for a wide-ranging Instagram Live chat in celebration of the release of their new live album, Look at Me Don't Look at Me. You can watch the conversation here.

  • About This Album

    Mountain Man—the trio of Amelia Meath, Alexandra Sauser-Monnig, and Molly Sarlé—released Mountain Man Sings Neil Young on October 14, 2020, the latest in its series of cover singles, featuring its version Young's "Through My Sails," from his 1975 album, Zuma.

    The digital single follows previous editions in the Mountain Man Sings series, which includes the band’s versions of the Shaker hymn "Simple Gifts," Kacey Musgraves’ “Slow Burn,” Wilco’s “You and I,” John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” and the Irving Berlin holiday classic “White Christmas.” In September 2020, Nonesuch released Mountain Man’s live album, Look at Me Don’t Look at Me, recorded in November 2018 at Saint Mark’s Cathedral in Seattle.

    "Neil Young has been a pillar of the soundtrack along the Mountain Man road from Vermont to the windy ocean roads of California," says the trio. "'Through My Sails' is such a gentle secret at the end of Zuma and it felt immediately natural and right sinking into the harmonies of Neil Young with Crosby, Stills and Nash."
