Watch the duo perform the single as a part of a virtual tribute concert in the wake of the recently released Hey Doll Baby compilation of the brothers' music.
There's a new compilation out that celebrates the legacy of pop greats The Everly Brothers. Hey Doll Baby, released earlier this year, includes hidden gems and rarities from the American rock pioneers. The 17-track project was compiled by Tom Petty's daughter Adria Petty, and it was the last contribution from the last living brother Don Everly, who passed away last year. Today, we're sharing a tribute to The Everlys from Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino and Butch Walker covering "Bye Bye Love."
"The Everly Brothers were a big influence to the early Best Coast sound, so when my friend Butch Walker asked me to cover this with him—I of course said yes," Cosentino says. "I can’t think of a more quintessential Everly Brothers track than 'Bye Bye Love' either—a perfect catchy melody that will be lodged in your brain for days, and some of the most beautiful vocals ever. It was super fun to get to sing this as a duet with Butch and harmonize together, I love singing with him."
Walker adds, "My love for the Everly Bros. goes deep, and when I told Bethany I was doing 'Bye Bye Love,' she said she would kill me if i didn’t ask her to sing it with me. So here we are. I love how we sang it together!”
