news::Booker T. Jones & Jolie Holland redo "What A Wonderful World"

Legendary musician, songwriter and producer Booker T. Jones has joined forces with Texas-born singer/performer and Shortlist nominee Jolie Holland for a gorgeous rendering of the Louis Armstrong classic, “What A Wonderful World.” Set for release as a digital single via Anti- on November 6th, the uplifting and charming Jones/Holland collaboration celebrates the song’s 40th anniversary by paying tribute to the Bob Thiele and George David Weiss-penned classic in its own distinctive and beautiful way. First released in the fall of 1967 as an antidote to the increasingly racially and politically-charged climate in the U.S. at the time, Jones and Holland’s viable new version of the song feels as apropos today as the original did four decades ago.
