Between 2006 and 2013, alternative rock artist Matthew Sweet and Bangles singer/guitarist Susanna hoffs released three collaborative albums covering their favourite songs from the '60s, '70s and '80s. This compilation brings together 30 of the very best tracks from across the Under The Covers series. "For me, making these recordings just felt like two music nerds getting together and having a really good time playing and recording songs that we worship," says Hoffs, "they're kind of a love letter from us as fans. They're like the equivalent of an old school mix tape that you would give someone you're crazy about. There's something incredibly romantic about it." Highlights include the rare promo tracks 'On My Way Home' and 'Sorry'. Includes guest appearances by Lindsey Buckingham ('Second Hand News'), Dhani Harrison ('Beware Of Darkness') and Van Dyke Parks ('It's All Over Now, Baby Blue').
