The Jerrys will release an album of cover songs in early 2024 and have dropped a new single, “Gloria,” ahead of the album. The as-yet-untitled album of cover tunes will include songs by The Beatles and The Kinks, among others.
Written by Van Morrison, “Gloria” was released by Them in 1964, but the song was made a bigger hit the following year by a Chicago band, The Shadows of Knight. The latter version contained lyrics that were more radio-friendly, and the song became hugely successful as well as a staple among garage bands everywhere.
While The Jerrys have released cover songs on occasion, the upcoming album will mark the first time the band has released an entire album of covers. The band is also working on new original material.
