Barry Gibb, Brandi Carlile Shine on Bee Gees Classic ‘Run to Me’ [Listen]
Barry Gibb stays in the cinematic lane with Brandi Carlile on a reimagination of the Bee Gees classic "Run to Me."
The two trade dreamy vocals on the romantic song re-recorded for Gibb's new country collaboration album, Greenfields. Drizzled with beautiful harmonies, the twosome honor the original version of the song, with Gibb taking lead vocals on the verse while Carlile fills in for the late Robin Gibb, who sang the choruses.
With a piano and soft orchestra supporting them, the two powerhouse singers capture the song's essence as they proclaim, "Run to me whenever you're lonely (to love me) / Run to me if you need a shoulder / Now and then you need someone older / So darling, you run to me."
"Run to Me" was the lead single off the Bee Gees' 1972 album To Whom It May Concern. It was co-written by the Gibb brothers and reached the Top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Recorded at the historic RCA Studio A with Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb at the helm, Greenfields sees Gibb re-introducing several of the Bee Gees' biggest hits with the help of Miranda Lambert, Dolly Parton, Keith Urban, Jason Isbell and more.
"It's all the people I dreamed of working with in country music," Gibb remarks in the album trailer about "some of the greatest country artists I've ever known."
"I tried to choose all of the people I admired the most," he adds. "I'm a collaborator, I'm a bluegrass artist, I'm a country artist, a songwriter, and I don't care what anyone else calls me."
