Watch Dave Gahan & Soulsavers cover PJ Harvey on Fallon

Dave Gahan & Soulsavers stopped by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon this weekend to promote the release of their latest LP.

Depeche Mode frontman and longtime collaborator Rich Machin released her new covers album Imposter under the guise of Soulsavers in November. Together they deliver unique interpretations of songs by the likes of Neil Young, Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan and many more.

Gahan told it recently NME that the 12 tracks chosen feel like they “carry a sense of wisdom and longevity that’s just there in the song and very clear in the voice.”

On Friday (March 18), Gahan and Machin joined Jimmy Fallon’s late night chat show for a live rendition of their PJ Harvey cover The Desperate Kingdom Of Love, originally featured on Harvey’s album Uh Huh Her” from 2004.

You can check out the cover below:

Imposter was recorded and produced by Gahan and Machin at Rick Rubin’s Shangri-La Studios in Malibu, California in November 2019.

According to Gahan, the setting inspired a “magical” sense of freedom for the assembled band, and also allowed them to work in the same spirit as the legendary Rubin-produced Johnny Cash covers album American IV: The Man Comes Around. .

“I didn’t listen to the originals at all on Johnny Cash’s album,” Gahan said NME. “His version of [Nine Inch Nails’] “Hurt” for example just blew me away and still does. I’ve heard stories from people who worked on the record that he had absolutely no idea who the original artist was!

“These were songs that were given to him by Rick, and Rick then assembled these musicians around him to bring out the best in Johnny at the time. rich [Machin] has this ability to do this to me. He put me in an environment with the right group of musicians and I felt completely comfortable and supported. I felt held, so I could do whatever the hell I wanted.”

In December, Dave Gahan & Soulsavers brought “Imposter” to London’s O2 Shepherds Bush Empire. You can see some of the performances from the set here.
