Spencer Sutherland’s Ex Holds His Clothing Hostage on “Sweater” for Original Tracks
His sophomore EP is expected out later this year via BMG.
Ohio-born, LA-based singer Spencer Sutherland released his sassily-titled debut EP, NONE of this has been about you, back in March of last year, and “Sweater” was one of its standout singles.
Today, we have a brand new version of the track from the alt-soul musician who draws inspiration from Elvis Presley and Marvin Gaye, on which his neo-soul falsetto croons out the age-old tale of clothing held hostage by a greedy ex. “That’s my sweater, why the fuck you got it on? / We’re not together, shoulda left that shit at home,” he sings snidely upon seeing his ex wearing one of his favorite clothing items out in public.
For our Original Tracks series, the “Sweater” song premiering today was produced by and performed with Antonio Beliveau, former frontman for LA rock band The Crash Kings. All instrumentation, including the percussion, was done with a piano. Sutherland is set to share new music soon, with his sophomore EP expected out later this year via BMG Recorded Music.
