Grammy-nominated rock band The Record Company recently announced their US tour dates for Fall 2022 and shared their cover of “Hound Dog,” the rock and roll classic popularized by Big Mama. Thornton and Elvis Presley.
Although The Record Company originally recorded his cover of “Hound Dog” in 2020 while working on his EP Side Project, they chose not to release it. But, following the recently renewed popularity of Elvis, the band finally decided it was time to debut.
In a press release, Vos describes what inspired him to cover the rock and roll classic, stating, “I love the song ‘Hound Dog’. I grew up with the Elvis version and found the Big Mama Thornton version later in life, so when we came together to do this track, we took the lyrical inspiration from Thornton’s original and a part of the attitude inspiration from the Elvis version, twisted it together, changed the chords and created something that doesn’t sound like much either.
The Record Company’s rendition of “Hound Dog” can be heard on most major streaming platforms. Additionally, a particularly charming live version is available to stream on Youtube, featuring bassist Alex Stiff’s dog, Seeger.
The Record Company’s 2022 tour will take them across several US states, stopping to perform at several notable venues, such as the El Rey Theater in Los Angeles, California, and Park West in Chicago, Illinois.
