Tom Waits Covers Album to Feature Aimee Mann, Phoebe Bridgers, Roseanne Cash & More


The all-female roster for "Come On Up To The House: Women Sing Waits" is due out Nov. 22

The music of hardcore troubadour Tom Waits will be celebrated on an upcoming Dualtone Records collection entitled Come On Up To The House: Women Sing Waits. The album, due out on Nov. 22, features a stellar cast of female singer/songwriters across the pop, rock and country spectrum taking on Waits' iconic, knotty catalog, including contributions from Aimee Mann, Joseph, Corinne Bailey Rae, Rosanne Cash, Angie McMahon, Courtney Marie Andrews, Phoebe Bridgers, sisters Shelby Lynne and Allison Moorer, Patty Griffin and more.

In advance of the release, the label has issued the audio for Griffin's haunting, expansive six-minute cover of the 1980 Heartattack and Vine tune "Ruby's Arms" and Courtney Marie Andrews' twangy version of the Rain Dogs classic "Downtown Train." In a statement, Dualtone CEO said, "After some great creative discussions many years back with an old publishing colleague, the concept of focusing on the sheer beauty of these songs by having them interpreted by a group of amazing artists with stunning voices, was a must-do project. Fast forward 15 years later, we were thrilled with the passion and enthusiasm these artists showed when we approached them with the idea, which you can hear in their performances. Truly a musical celebration.”

The album will be available in a number of configurations, including a bundle with a limited-edition 180 gram white double vinyl; click here to pre-order. It was produced by former Del Fuegos singer Warren Zanes, who also wrote the liner notes.
