What’s New? Jack Cooper – ‘Fat Old Sun’

Ahead of his upcoming tour with Parquet Courts’ Andrew Savage, Ultimate Painting’s Jack Cooper has dropped a Pink Floyd cover that’s just as beautiful as you’d expect.

Fat Old Sun‘ does more than justice to the original, displaying Cooper’s remarkable talent at taking a classic number and adding his own country-inspired twist. His vocals are on-point – and his guitar even more so.

On the cover, Cooper explains: “I was selling merch at the last show of my US tour and a guy who had bought a record told me that the live band sounded like Meddle-era Pink Floyd. In hindsight I should’ve hugged him because as far as compliments go, that’s the best I’ve ever had. I think that post-Syd and pre-Dark Side; Pink Floyd were such an interesting band… weird, English, pastoral, loose, economic and occasionally perfect. I love Syd Barrett and most things up to the Wall but I think that mid-era is the most fascinating. I love recording covers and in learning this I gained some fresh perspective on simplicity.” Listen below:
