Hootie & The Blowfish Release Amazon Original Cover of R.E.M.’s “Losing My Religion”

Today, Hootie & The Blowfish released an Amazon Original cover of R.E.M.’s “Losing My Religion” available to stream and purchase only on Amazon Music.

"When we were cutting our teeth as a band, almost every night fans would hear us on stage covering R.E.M.," shares Hootie & the Blowfish frontman Darius Rucker from his home in South Carolina. "'Losing My Religion' is a song that when you first listen to it, you can feel the struggle, the back-and-forth. Plus, Peter Buck wrote the song on mandolin, and being in the south, it's a lot of fun to perform live. We're releasing it as a cover with Amazon Music as I think it's still as thrilling to people today as it was when it was first released." 

Amazon Music Unlimited listeners can find the track on “Fresh Country” and Prime Music listeners can find it on “Certified Country.” Or find it on the Amazon music app and on Alexa-enabled devices by asking “Alexa play the Amazon Original by Hootie & The Blowfish.” Listen HERE!
