Well, my two worlds will be colliding on April 13 when Juliana Hatfield releases an entire album of Olivia Newton-John covers. I absolutely love it when an artist expresses a gushing fandom for their heroes, particularly when their heroes don't exactly fit into what's considered hip at the time. It truly shows an honesty and what they actually like. No official recordings are available to listen to as of yet, but I scoured the internet (ok, I did a 10 second YouTube search...) and found video of Juliana performing "Physical" as the Q Division holiday party last month. It's cell phone quality, but it shows Juliana attacking the Newton-John classic like the 90's alt rock god she is.
Juliana Hatfield Sings Olivia Newton-John will be available April 13 via American Laundromat Records. You can pre-order your copy, which you know you want, here. The tracklist is below.
