Covered: Tom Freund feat Ben Harper "Let My Love Open the Door" (Pete Townshend)

Written by

Tom Freund has been covering Pete Townshend's 1980 single "Let My Love Open the Door" as a part of his live shows since 2008. Now, with the help of friend and frequent collaborator, Ben Harper, the world has a studio version of this ukulele-driven cover to enjoy. "We’ve played it ‘live” in various corners of the world, from the Alps of Italy to the lower Manhattan subterranean," said Freund of the track, adding that "this year felt like the right time to lay it down in the studio." While a video is said to be in the works, you can check out a stream of the song below...

Harper lays down vocals and lap steel guitar on the track, with Matt Johnson (Jeff Buckley, St Vincent) on drums, Rob Calder (Passenger, Angus and Julia Stone) on bass and Tom on "everything else." "Let My Love Open the Door" is available now on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Pandora and the like.
